Jason Hope is a positive force in the world to be reckoned with. Educated and driven, he moves with ease through the world of technology entrepreneurship. A native of Arizona, Jason attended Arizona State University where he received his Bachelor of Arts in Finance. From there he continued his education and got his Master of Business Administration at W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University.
He loves giving back and considers himself a philanthropist. This knowledgeable entrepreneur donates his time as a Director at the Arizona Science Center. He also has given to causes he is passionate about including the SENS Foundation. So far, Jason has pledged a whopping $500,000. That’s half a million dollars to a program that researches and uses biotechnology to fight age related diseases. How cool is that?
Hope calls himself a futurist. What is that you might say? He predicts the future of technology and where it will go and how it will help mankind. The internet of things (IoT) as people call it will have a major impact on how we operate our daily lives Jason believes. The internet of things refers to tech devices that are connected to the internet. Examples of smart cars, wearable things such as Fitbit, and digital coffee machines that you can connect to your laptop.
A typical day for Jason Hope starts off with some physical activity and a healthy breakfast. He then logs on to his computer to check social media and answer emails. Taking new ideas and projects one step at a time is how he makes things happen. He also talks to people close to him about his ideas and get feedback. To be successful he thinks about the big picture and goes forward melodically to accomplish his goals. Jason does not doubt himself and works with complete confidence in his ideas. One of his ideas that other people may not agree with is about aging. He truly believes that there are drugs that work on a cellular level to decrease the symptoms of aging. That is why he believes wholeheartedly in the SENS Research Foundation. He is particularly interested in how this process can help Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease.
Speaking of aging, if he could give a piece of advice to his younger self it would be to not fret about the minor details, think about the bigger picture of what you are doing. One of his most recent best decisions was that he sold his house. It had been on the market for 5 years and it finally sold. It allowed Jason to move forward and with time and finances so that he could focus on new projects.
