The Russian nation has been at the heart of the development of new technologies since the late 19th-century. The development of a range of technologies began in Russia, including the creation of the radio and the launch of the first human into space. Over the course of the late-20th-century, the position of Russia as a technology leader has taken a hit with economic problems at the turn of the 21st-century resulting in the U.S. and much of Asia. The single term of Vladimir Putin as the Prime Minister of Russia from 2008 to 2012 led to a burst of activity from American investors in Russia, including tech expert William Saito.
Growing up in a Japanese-American family in Walnut, California, William Saito struggled to master the English language but felt at home with technology in his own home. Saito would go on to establish his impressive own I/O Software company which would eventually lead to Saito being named Entrepreneur of the Year for 1998 and Microsoft purchasing his startup.
In terms of Russia, William Saito would be among the first to recognize the amazing potential offered by Russia as a technology leader. The improvements available in Russia were initially focused on the development of the impressive Kaspersky antivirus brand which proved popular until it was downgraded by American technology leaders. William Saito has been pivotal in finding the simplest way of introducing Russian technology into the wider world.
William Saito has spent much of the last few years assisting with the development of various technology startups based around the existing technology sectors of cybersecurity for the oil and gas industries. During the last few years, Willaim Saito has inspired many U.S.-based investment companies including Goldman Sachs to seek out various Russian startups, which are being advised by Google and other high-profile American technology groups.
