Arizona entrepreneur, Jason Hope is going into unchartered territory with his financial donations and support of anti-aging research. Uncharted, because Jason’s aim is to make aging a thing of the past or at the very least halt the progression of its most devastating effects. In 2010, Jason made headlines with his gift contribution of $500,000 to the SENS Research Foundation. The Foundation is a charitable organization dedicated to groundbreaking anti-aging research. Located in Mountainview, California, SENS is opening genetic pathways in rejuvenation biotechnology. That’s the field of scientific based research that examines the potential benefits of regenerative medicine.
SENS research is specifically targeted towards identifying the underlying cellular markers that are the root cause of aging. And not only as remedy, but to prevent the queue of accelerated aging seen as result. SENS uses biotechnology to not only help the general population, but also as a combined approach to stop degenerative diseases such as diabetes, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and cancer. The initial donation by Jason Hope enabled ongoing research into the medicinal properties of sugar molecules. These molecules are involved in a cellular process called, glycation. Glycation (glucose production) causes us to age faster, research is needed to reduce the end product accumulation in humans. Jason said that he felt compelled to help with research efforts, because a breakthrough could prevent these disease states from occurring in the first place.

Jason Hope has been evolving as a philanthropist and entrepreneur since he graduated from Arizona State University (ASU). He earned both his undergraduate and graduate degrees from ASU. Because of his passionate interest in technology, Jason branched out into the ever challenging area of biotechnology. While in attendance at an event in San Francisco called, Breakthrough Philanthropy, the public became aware of financial contribution to SENS.

Technology platforms support a multitude of causes, Jason Hope believes that the overall connectivity of the “internet of things,” is a powerful influence. In an interview, Hope was asked to expound on his belief about the Internet of Things (IoT) technology. He said of all things related to the Internet, the possibilities in regard to business and human dependence is “becoming viable.” By “viable” Jason means that every year significant advancements are made in new technology. Technology that’s introduced to the world. And that makes him excited about the future of IoT, because already every home has some type of Internet connected device.
