Jason Hope is an entrepreneur that is based out of Scottsdale, AZ. Hope was born and raised in Arizona, eventually graduating from Arizona State University before pursing his MBA later, and he has long been one of the most prominent futurists that the state has developed. In fact, as a futurist there are few people more impressive right now than Jason Hope. Let’s look at a few of Hope’s most recent areas of focus in order to see what he has cooking up for the future of his career.
As an entrepreneur you have to always be ready and willing to jump into a new project without any hesitation. You want to do your research but you can’t let new concepts hold you back. Hope is one of the most vocal and prominent believers in a new area of technological development called the Internet of Things. This term is used to condense the idea of a world connected to the internet into a smaller catch-all phrase. The Internet of Things is going to eventually completely change our way of life, according to Hope. Consider smart technology and how your life would change if it filled every utility in your room and life. You’d live differently. Hope is advising corporations to get involved with the concept now before it becomes the next big industry.
Jason Hope has always believed in biotechnology as well which led him to start paying attention to the work of the California based SENS Foundation. The goal of the SENS Foundation is to research and develop biotechnology that is aimed at addressing age related illness and disease. Hope believes that this is the future of the medical field and he believes it so fundamentally that he sent a $500,000 donation to the research firm. Hop has long been a fan of Aubre de Grey, the CSO at the SENS Foundation, and he wanted to make sure that he supported his research.
Jason Hope isn’t solely successful because of his ability to look to the future. He is also successful because he knows how to find passion in others. Hope started the mobile tech company Jawa and through that success he was able to become a venture capitalist. Now a big part of Hope’s career is working with other people and weeding out the passionate from the dispassionate and those destined to succeed from those that just won’t make it.
