Sitima Fowler left the corporate world after 15 years of service to start Capstone Information Technologies, which provides Computer support services to small businesses in the Rochester area. She risked a 6 figure salary to no salary to speak of in order to chase after her dream of entrepreneurship. The risk has paid off. In February 2008, she was named 2008 Enterprising Women of the Year Finalist by Enterprising Women Magazine and her company was placed in Inc. magazine’s list of 5000 fastest growing companies in the nation. Capstone has doubled its revenue every year since inception in 2003. In 2013, Capstone was named on the Rochester Top 100 list and on Inc 5000 as one of nation’s fastest growing companies. Prior to starting Capstone, Sitima worked at General Motors, Fuel Cell Activities and Xerox as a product development manager. She has a BS degree in Electrical Engineering and a MS from RIT in Manufacturing Management and Leadership. In the community, she is a volunteer/fundraiser for the Wilson Commencement Center, Boys and Girls Club, and the Center for Youth. She volunteers her time at the local elementary and middle school by teaching in the classroom. She is actively involved with many volunteering services at her church like cooking and serving meals to raise money for the less privileged. She currently mentors 5 women in the Rochester area. She is involved at the University of Rochester’s Women in Engineering’s mentoring program and the Young Entrepreneurs Academy. Sitima lives in Fairport with her husband and 2 children. She holds 6 US patents, author of the book, Computers Should Just Work, and is a weekly blogger for the Democrat and Chronicle on business advice.
