Although not a household name, Jason Hope ranks as one of the most prolific entrepreneurs in the state of Arizona. He has been behind the formation of some of the most innovative companies in not only the state’s history but also that of the entire country. Hope has been behind the formation of such companies as Jawa, the first mobile premium content streaming service. In this endeavor, he was able to beat Apple to the creation of this business model by more than 10 years, proving him to be one of the most visionary entrepreneurs of our age.
Hope has also been responsible for the creation of many other highly successful startups. These have ranged from business-to-business application developers to web design firms. Today, Hope has largely stepped away from his incredibly busy and stressful schedule running his media empire. Now, the inveterate entrepreneur prefers to spend his time writing and blogging for various tech outlets. Hope has focused on the coming revolution that will be ushered in by the advent of the Internet of Things as well as the incredible advancements that will soon be taking place within the realm of medical technology.
As part of this vision, Hope has recently announced that he will be donating more than a half a million dollars to the SENS Foundation, one of the most important and cutting-edge research institutions in the United States today. The SENS Foundation was founded more than 10 years ago by one of the most prestigious gerontologists in the world today. Aubrey de Grey has won various awards for his insights into the aging process. Among his many discoveries, Aubrey de Grey has been able to isolate and identify seven distinct features that occur as all cells age. This insight into the aging process at the cellular level has laid the groundwork for research that may someday allow for the vast majority of people to live well past the age of 100.
For his part, Hope has said that the money that he has donated will be used primarily for atherosclerosis research. While atherosclerosis is one of the deadliest diseases in the United States today, killing more than 500,000 people each year due to conditions such as heart attack, stroke and other diseases related to venous insufficiency, Hope believes that understanding the inflammatory processes that underlie this condition will eventually lead to a much stronger universal understanding of the aging process itself.
