Some see a project’s fruition as the end.
The Model T Ford, introduced in 1908, boasted quite a few innovations over the eight cars that preceded it, including features that lowered cost, increased reliability and dealt with bad roads.
At the same time, the Model T was the first ordinary production car with steering on the left. As roads improved, it became more important for drivers to see oncoming traffic than steep roadside drop-offs.
You might consider this a culmination.

When the first Model T rolled into the street, he had an employee drive him all over town.
Grinning from ear to ear, he declared, “Well, I guess we’ve got started.”
