Jason Hope has been described as someone who always looks toward the future. This forward moving attitude can be seen in the organizations he chooses to support through his charitable contributions. Most recently, this successful Internet business entrepreneur pledged 500,000 dollars to the SENS Foundation to aid their anti-aging research. This foundation focuses their efforts on rejuvenation research, which holds the possibility of eliminating many of the conditions associated with old age, including Alzheimer’s. Jason Hope wholly supports the work being done by the Foundation’s lead physician, Dr. Aubrey de Grey.
When looking at the areas of business Jason Hope is passionate about, the half a million dollar pledge he made to the SENS Foundation makes perfect sense. Currently residing in Scottsdale, Arizona Jason Hope has always had a passion for technology. He began his career in business by attending Arizona State University from which he obtained his finance degree. He then went on to earn his MBA from the W.P. Carey Business School. Although he started out by creating his own mobile communications business, he now focuses his efforts on backing projects in biotechnology as well as investing in startups.
Jason Hope sees himself as an integral part of the future of humankind. His insights into the world of technology have helped him gain a perspective on where the future of medicine is headed. In this respect, he believes the work being conducted at the SENS Foundation is definitely worth investing in. Not only does he see the work this Foundation does as being a necessary step in the evolution of modern medicine, but he also believes there should be a new branch of medicine devoted entirely to the biotech industry. This would allow for more changes to be made toward the process of medicine as it relates to all fields of health.
Jason Hope’s philanthropic steps toward helping the SENS Foundation are not the only charitable endeavors he has made. When looking to assist startup companies in the world of business, he looks for people who have amazing ideas and assists them with grants that help them put those ideas into action. In his personal approach to business he tries to keep his ideas simple to maintain a higher degree of success. Since most of what he does involves the Internet he has often described futuristic trends as being related to IoT or the Internet of Things, which he is excited to see continue to evolve in the future.
