Dynamo was founded by two entrepreneurs in 2011 with a passion for developing high performance solutions and, of course, turbomachinery.  We wanted to tackle the big challenge of building a versatile turbine platform that leveraged the strengths of turbines: fuel flexibility, reliability, and power density.  We set up shop at Greentown Labs, where we still reside, and we built up a team of experienced turbine experts and accomplished oilmen to help us build world class solutions.  To fund our work, the NSF & DOE helped to kick off our development, and the rest is history.
