A Turbogenerator Company
Sevin Rosen Funds, a venture capital firm, helps finance start-up companies. When they needed a name for a new turbogenerator company, Ben Rosen called NameStormers.
The new company would be making turbines that serve as back-ups to electric power systems for hospitals and other facilities that couldn't afford a blip in power. The turbines come online immediately if there is a loss of electricity to ensure continuous energy.
The name "Capstone" was chosen because it starts with a "C", like Compaq and many of the other Sevin Rosen start-up investments. Also Capstone is defined as a "crowning achievement, point, element, or event." It sounds solid and stable. Perfect for a company that would be building potentially lifesaving equipment.
