Jason Hope is a futurist and a good one, at that. Hope has spent his entire career working to find tech innovation before it becomes mainstream, thus placing himself at the forefront of the pack when the tide rises. This kind of thinking helped Jason Hope to establish Jawa, a successful mobile communications company. Now, Hope is using his affinity for futurism in order to hone in on one of the most important industries in the world: biotechnology. Specifically, Hope is putting his name and reputation behind the importance of biotechnology in relation to treating age-related illness and disease.
Growing up and growing old is a part of life that nobody escapes and yet despite this fact, futurists like Jason Hope believe that there has to be a better way. Right now, in the world we live in, age-related disease and illness afflict an incredible number of our elderly population. While we look at problems like hypertension and Alzheimer’s as a part of life, this isn’t what futurists like Hope or clinical research facilities like the SENS Research Foundation truly believe. In fact, this shared belief brought the two parties together when Hope decided to donate half of a million dollars toward their cause.
As an established entrepreneur, Jason Hope is always looking for new opportunity in his field. This led him to research several different sectors of technology before settling on the work that is being done at the SENS Research Foundation. At the SENS Foundation, CEO Mike Kope and CSO Dr. Aubrey De Grey are working toward providing therapeutic solutions to those age-related illnesses that have caused humanity so much harm and suffering. Hope’s donation was received with grace at the Breakthrough Philanthropy event hosted by Peter Thiel and the Thiel Foundation. CEO Mike Kope announced that the donation would be put immediately toward boosting the research that is being done on Arteriosclerosis which leads to hardened arteries that contribute to hypertension and diabetes. Hope’s donation will be used toward turning this research into an actionable solution that might change the way we live and age for the rest of time.
