Bannana in Boston

Fortune, After All

Authored by Mr Martti Vallila
Edition: 1

The bombing of the Boston Marathon created a new link between Boston and Russia, original home of the bomber brothers. I had moved to Boston months prior to the April 15 bombing to open an East Coast office for Fuzzy Chip, a company commercializing the multi-value chip designs of Dr. Viktor Olexenko of Vladivostok, in Russia's Far East. I believed Boston to be an appropriate place in which to expand my efforts to commercialize "transformational technologies" from Russia, given the presence of world renown research facilities there. My business model suggests that early stage Russian technologies require validation in trusted western settings in order to be seriously considered by western investors and industrial partners. I considered the MIT link with Skolkovo (Moscow's "top-down" attempt to create a "Russian Silicon Valley") a relationship that could be improved by a "bottom-up" approach innovation requires. The "bottom-up" initiative of Boston's citizens was instrumental in first identifying the bombers and cornering them in Watertown. Another Russian-sourced technology I had "inside knowledge" of was a treatment for Alzheimer's and other age-related neurological ailments in secret clinical trials in Kazakhstan. The book tells the story of how I pursued funding for these two potential "success stories" in real time, tapping into local resources and networks. It describes numerous links between Boston and Russia that predate the bombing, and preparations I made in Boston for legal proceedings I faced in Finland. I attended the Whitey Bolger trial for an inside look at the criminal mind and the American judicial process. Participating in a special grand jury in Boston gave me a look at the city's criminal present. Attempts to get funding for my companies took much longer than I imagined and led me, eventually, to the Trump White House, outside of which I was interrogated by the secret service, providing this fifth "Bannana book" with an ending I could not have imagined when I started it. This book can be considered a sequel to "Bannana in Russia" where I explain how I discovered the technologies described in the appendix of this book, and testimony to the sad fact that seemingly the only way to get attention in today's America is to act like a terrorist! This book contains, in its appendix, descriptions of the disruptive technologies that are the foundation of both Buddha Biopharma and Fuzzy Chip, and can thus be viewed as a vehicle for informing the reading public about these technologies and their potential for transforming the relationship between Russia and America. The book should be of interest to anyone seeking advice on how to fund companies based on strong intellectual property protection. The book describes the shoddy treatment I experienced in Finland's legal system, explaining my decision to incorporate Fuzzy Chip in Singapore, and includes speculations about the future direction of Russia's innovation efforts, whether she looks East (to the Chinese development model) or West where intellectual property protection is the basis of value creation.
