The name “Prometheus” comes from Greek mythology. Prometheus was the Titan of knowledge who took fire from Olympus and gave it to humankind. In this story, fire is a symbol of knowledge, technology, and progress. Prometheus means “forethought” in Greek, and in English it has become an eponym denoting “daring creativity or bold originality.” Prometheus was the wisest Titan, and symbolizes human achievement, especially in technology. Prometheus is a fitting symbol for what we do every day at Prometheus Development.
