Jason hope is an entrepreneur from Scottsdale, Arizona. While his background is in business he has set his sights on some truly ambitious aspirations, namely the end of the human aging process. Jason says that aging is simply a chemical process like any other medical condition and can, therefore, be controlled and even halted by chemical means. But this truly inspiring goal is not the only plan Jason brings to the table. His views on technology, specifically the internet of things is nearly as ambitious, with nearly as large repercussions for humanity as a whole.
The internet of things is an idea that has been floating around for several years now. It is the notion that the interconnectivity that we see with the internet will tie together more things than just computers. This is already happening today. We can see with our phones, our cars, even our thermostats. It won’t be long before everything we use will be sending data to every other thing anyone uses. It is a complex and potentially concerning idea, but Jason Hope’s position is that it will be for the benefit of humanity.
Jason Hope started his business career with an undergraduate degree in finance. He then went on to receive his MBA from the University of Arizona. He said that mobile communication technology was one of our largest catalysts for change and thus was his choice of industry to start out in. Out of grad school, he founded Jawa, a mobile communications company which was as a parent company for other technology partnerships. Today he makes the lion’s share of his earnings from his investment portfolio that contain a diverse array of technology services.
Hope is quite successful in his ventures, but he also gives back. This is where his avid support of a medical end to aging comes into play. He hopes that his donations and support can bring about a stop to mankind’s oldest enemy, old age. His collaboration with the SENS foundation and his work with Aubrey De Grey has been, as he says, “my most satisfying moment to date”.
