The Arizona based entrepreneur and technology aware futurist minded individual Jason Hope has taken strides in the field of anti-aging. One non-profit that he focuses much of his donations to is the SENS foundation. This foundation was started up in 2009. Donations to the foundation is for research on how to prevent diseases that are related to aging. Interestingly, Jason Hope is more focused on how to prevent anti-aging diseases before they come into effect in the human body.
Jason Hope has a degree from Arizona State University and an MBA from ASU’s W.P. Carey School of Business. As a successful entrepreneur, he sticks to one focus at a time. He sees young entrepreneurs like himself making the mistake of putting all their eggs in too many baskets far too quickly. This mistake is something he is careful to avoid. Jason Hope’s main basket is clearly his skill at understanding the technology market. He is of the mind that the Internet of Things (or otherwise known as IoT) is going to only continue to grow, and therefore more devices of the world will out of necessity have to be connected to the internet.
Similarly to his focus on one particular entrepreneurial focus, Jason Hope is focused on one particular philanthropic effort. He primarily focuses his donations to preventative medicine research concerning aging diseases. He donates primarily to the non-profit foundation SENs. He donates to this foundation because of their research into aging being reversible at the cellular level with the right drugs. The SENS research foundation has come under some scrutiny by religious groups for the use of stem cells in the research to create a drug that will reverse aging within cells. Jason Hope understands that the opposition is based on the morals of some religions, but he sees that being at the forefront of scientific research to improve the lives of humanity is more important to him personally. To reverse aging at the cellular level should help to reverse Alzheimer’s and other aging based diseases. Where most research into Alzheimer’s and dementia is focused on how to treat it once the disease already exists within the mind, the efforts of Hope stand apart. Perhaps preventative medicine versus treatment medicine will be the solution to this difficult aging disease.
