Here’s a round-up of the latest Wellesley, Mass., business news:
Halo Energy produces
A start-up called Halo Energy, which lists a Cliff Estates home in Wellesley as its base, has announced that it has begun producing relatively small wind turbines designed to power remote telecom network towers.
We suspect the production isn’t happening in Wellesley, nor that the devices will be installed here (we messaged the head of business development to find out, but have not heard back).
The company boasts of having 10+ years and either $150M+ or $200M in research and development behind its breakthrough shrouded turbine, depending on which part of its marketing materials you go with it. Not that Halo is above more investment, if you’re willing to fork over at least a grand.

Chyten is now Livius
Tutoring company Chyten, which has a Wellesley location on Washington Street, has changed its name to Livius.
Why the change? The company’s original name came from its founder, but he left in 2017. The new name is a reference to Livius Andronicus, the first tutor. He used education to free himself from slavery.
Livius says its new name is also a rebranding opportunity. It continues to focus on entrance exam preparation & admissions counseling for grades 6-12. But now it is injecting analytics into its processes to offer even better tailored options for students, including those who want to access services online.
In addition to its Wellesley location, Livius has offices in Andover, Lexington and Newton.
