UpStart Mobile had branded their cab-hailing app Cabulous, which was far too whimsical to be taken seriously.
Lexicon developed the name Flywheel as a replacement for Cabulous. A flywheel is a key component in an intricate network of mechanical parts, necessary for smooth and accurate functioning. This mirrors Flywheel's approach, working together with the system rather than against it. The name is also composed of two highly relevant words related to transportation and getting you around a city.
Startups are different. They need names that signal the company and its products are about the future, not the past. We have always enjoyed close ties to Silicon Valley, and our credentials include revolutionary and billion-dollar brands such as PowerBook and Pentium. This tradition has continued with more recent cutting-edge innovators such as Ten-X, Lucid Motors, Lightbend, and Tangible Science.
