Jason Hope is a futurist, philanthropist, investor, and entrepreneur who is based out of Scottsdale, Arizona. He studied at Arizona State University where he earned his degree in Finance, and he went on to receive an MBA while attending ASU’s W.P. Carey School of Business. Hope uses his intricate knowledge of technology to predict the future of where technology in any given industry is headed in. He has deduced that the Internet of Things (IoT) is going to play a large role in the technology of the future and that company’s and other entrepreneurs would be wise to follow this trend.
Jason Hope, in recent years, has donated a large sum of money to help the SENS Foundation with work on anti-aging. The non-profit organization, specifically, looks to make biotechnologies that rejuvenate and address age-related diseases more available to the public at-large. Hope donated $500,000 to the foundation and commented that he has been following the work of Dr. Aubrey de Grey, who works with the SENS Foundation, for a long time. He also expressed that he believes that the work that the foundation is doing is essential to humankind. By donating to the foundation, he is promoting its work on combating diabetes, Alzheimer’s, Atherosclerosis, and more. It is his hope that groups like the SENS Foundation will be able to change the course of humanity.
On top of the SENS Foundation, Jason Hope also supports educational programs in his area and other organizations that work to prevent and reduce diseases and other detrimental health conditions. In his life, he has supported Family Health International, The Mark Wahlberg Youth Foundation, T Gen Foundation, Teach for America Phoenix, The Andre Agassi Foundation, The Tony Hawk Foundation, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Desert Mountain States Chapter, the Boys & Girls Club of Metropolitan Phoenix, International Foundation for Education and Self Help and the Arizona Science Center, and many more. Hope has also set up his own scholarship on his website that helps seniors in high school and college students to turn their ideas into realities. He offers these students a chance to submit their technology ideas and then looks over every single submission personally. The best ideas receive a $500-$5000 grant to help get them started with their endeavor.
Looking into the future, which he does a lot of, Jason Hope expects to continue his philanthropy and hopes to make as much of an impact on the state of humanity as possible.
