As one of the most prolific entrepreneurs in the state of Arizona, Jason Hope has been at the forefront of the development of some of the most important industries in the technological space over the last 20 years. After having graduated from Arizona State University with a master’s degree in business administration, Hope quickly went on to stake his own claim in the business world. This resulted in the creation of one of the first-ever premium mobile content streaming providers, predating the similar systems created by Apple and Google by more than 10 years.
But Hope was also involved in a wide number of other highly successful startups. These included the creation of business-to-business software, app development as well as many other technological solutions. Now, Hope has largely stepped back from the day today details of running his own tech empire. He now dedicates much of his time to his philanthropic efforts as well as blogging and writing articles for various tech outlets on the role that technology plays now and will play into the future.
One of the most important things that Hope has been intimately involved in over the last 10 years has been his philanthropic pursuits. Recently, Hope announced that he had donated more than half a million dollars to the SENS Foundation, one of the most forward-looking medical research institutions in the world. The SENS Foundation is dedicated to finding cures for many of the diseases that are related to the aging process. Additionally, the SENS Foundation seeks to find ways to prevent the aging process from taking hold at all, potentially leading to the ability for people to indefinitely stave off the worst effects of the aging process.
It was announced by Hope that the bulk of the donation will go towards atherosclerosis research. Although atherosclerosis is one of the deadliest diseases in the United States today, claiming hundreds of thousands of lives each year through its downstream effects of heart attack, stroke and organ damage, Hope believes that the underlying causes that lead to atherosclerosis in the first place are related to other ailments that are associated closely with senescence.
Hope believes that by understanding the inflammatory response that lies at the heart of the atherosclerotic process that many other diseases that share common biomolecular roots will be able to be treated far more effectively in the future.
