In this dispensation of the internet and technological advancements, any disciplined minds will pay attention to optimists. One such person who is worth paying attention to is Jason Hope. Jason’s reputation that’s rooted in technology and his splendid passion in improving lives is worth following by anyone with interest in changing trends concerning the internet and online activities. Most notable is the way corporations and many businesses are inclining towards The Internet of Things in the realization that traditional forms of transacting are becoming irrelevant.
Jason notes that, although The Internet of Things comes with challenges such as hacking and other security concerns, the future still looks bright. Jason elucidates that although internet security is a concern enough to bring about apprehension, the chief focus should be on standardization and how well dissemination will transverse platforms. He further notes that, although standardizing internet platforms should be the way to go, such a move poses challenges in regards to profitability for companies involved in the development of internet platforms.
Jason’s optimism on the internet of things is worth learning from and adopting, for example, when some people opine that The Internet of Things is at its peak and is bound to collapse. Contrary to this Jason believes that the hype will get annulled. For this to happen, Jason posits that as long as there is a rational and standardized approach to technological innovations, The Internet of Things will keep progressing.
Jason Hope was brought up in Tempe and is an alumnus of Arizona State University from where he graduated with a degree in Finance and a Master of Business Administration from Carey School of Business. Jason has interest in politics, entrepreneurship and technology. He is a philanthropist who believes in improving lives and engaging in community-based developments. His personality of wanting to keep things basic and want to simplify concepts is admirable and exudes enviable confidence in his philanthropic and business endeavors.
In 2010, Jason Hope announced his donation to SENS Foundation amounting half a million dollars. The Foundation is a non-profit group aiding the rejuvenation of biotechnological endeavors in addressing age-related diseases such as Diabetes, Atherosclerosis, and Alzheimer. At the local community level in Arizona, Jason Hope contributes immensely to education programs. Jason Hope has worked with various organizations such as Worldwide Orphans Foundation, the Boys and Girls Club of Metropolitan Phoenix, and Family Health International among others.
The fountain of youth may be an obvious myth, but the new research that is being conducted by the SENS Research Foundation regarding aging clearly is not. The organization is devoted to finding new information and potential cures for certain diseases that develop naturally as people grow older. Much of the work the group is now doing was first performed by the Methuselah Foundation beginning in 2003. Anti-aging research is the primary focus of the SENS group, technically known as Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence, and have recently been the recipient of a $500,000 donation from Arizona businessman, entrepreneur, and philanthropist Jason Hope.
Jason Hope has been very successful in his business ventures since graduating from the University of Arizona. Even though he has developed business interests across the nation, he has stayed true to his Arizona roots, currently living and operating in his hometown of Scottsdale. Hope is well-known among the research industry as a top promoter and philanthropist in new areas of technology that allow scientists to utilize concepts associated with rethinking certain diseases such as Parkinson’s and diabetes. The SENS Organization is just one such researcher taking a strategic approach in hopes of developing a completely new bio-tech industry that addresses molecular changes in the body that can be stopped or impeded for a significant period.
This new approach is exactly the type of science that drives Jason Hope as a philanthropist. His other organization contributions have included significant grants to The Tony Hawk Foundation, the Andre Agassi Foundation, and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of the western state chapters.

In addition to these particular charitable organizations, Jason Hope has also been a significant contributor to the Arizona Science Center. He is actually a member of the Director’s Circle of this local state operation. Jason’s most serious focus on entrepreneurship currently is the primary impact the internet of things will have in the future, along with how future businesses will implement this technology as more and more devices are built. These future technological capabilities will become part of the consummate interconnection of devices designed to assist future generations in living more productive lives.
