Fitzpatrick founded OVO Energy in 2009. The company was the culmination of a five-year plan during which he received a licence from Ofgem, the U.K. energy regulator, and saved the £350,000 to start the business. As of July 2016, the company served 685,000 customers and employed over 1000 people in Bristol and London. He acknowledged his inexperience with the energy market and used the five years to study the industry as well as credited the experience he gained with complex finances during those five years as critical to the company's survival. In 2014 Fitzpatrick won Entrepreneur of the Year at the National Business Awards.
