Patrick Nagle is a tech entrepreneur and venture investor known for creating successful internet companies. Today, driven by a combination of professional expertise and personal experience, he is committed to advancing MentalHealth.com, a health technology company guiding people towards self-understanding and connection.
Patrick’s entrepreneurial journey began with RateMyProfessors.com, a website enabling college students to review their professors. Notably, he not only invested in the venture but also assumed the role of CEO. Launched in 2001, the site swiftly ascended to become the nation’s top college website and was eventually acquired by Viacom.
Recognizing the value of premium online real estate and drawing from personal experience, Patrick raised millions of dollars of debt financing for the acquisition of Rehab.com in 2018, as well as to fund the business. In this capacity, he assumed the roles of the original founder, first investor, and CEO. Throughout his tenure, the company aided countless individuals with their rehabilitation needs, achieved significant corporate growth, underwent a comprehensive management restructuring, and accomplished a successful business exit—all without external equity investment.
More recently, Patrick secured ownership of MentalHealth.com, recognizing the global importance and complexity of mental health. In his current role as the first investor and Co-Founder, Patrick continues to drive innovation, leveraging his extensive two decades of experience.
In less than a year, MentalHealth.com achieved an all-time high in website traffic, secured venture capital with participation from Cicada Capital, LLC and Supermind Platforms, Inc., and celebrated a successful BETA website launch, featuring a comprehensive library of reliable resources. On November 6, 2023, Patrick led MentalHealth.com’s acquisition of the online mental health platform and community, MentalHelp.net, followed by the release of the MentalHealth.com Wellness Portal on December 22, 2023.
Additionally, Patrick co-led corporate governance initiatives by successfully recruiting and establishing prominent advisory teams to collaborate with leadership in driving business initiatives and upholding its people-first culture: the Venture Advisory Team, featuring Brian Trisler, Co-Founder of A Place for Mom; Fred Joyal and Gary Saint-Denis, Co-Founders of 1-800-DENTIST; Abhilash Patel, Founder of Within Health; and Jeff Smith, Co-Founder and CEO of Supermind Platforms; as well as the Clinical Care Team, including Co-Founder and Clinical Director Dr. Jesse Hanson, PhD; and the Public Oversight Committee, with involvement from Ryan Hampton.
