Jason Hope lives up to his family name as he serves as a beacon of light for many people, young and old, through the projects he leads. He is more than just an investor, as he also excels in technology, business, and charity work. Thus, it will be greater to know the man more.
Hope enrolled in the Arizona State University to take up a Bachelor’s degree in Finance. After that, he went back to the same university, particularly in the W. P. Carey School of Business, in order to receive a Master’s degree in Business Administration.
Jason Hope is a well-known fan of technological advancements that propagate in the country. As a matter of fact, he is one of the entrepreneurs to date who strongly supports the use of Internet of Things, a program wherein individuals who are staying in different parts of the globe can share information with one another through their mobile devices as long as internet connectivity is available.
According to Jason’s blog, the new system can help a lot of people to expand their own businesses. He even forecasted that soon enough the healthcare and manufacturing industries are going to start using it on a daily basis, and with the driverless cars that have been highlighted in the International CES Show as an example.
To further increase the knowledge of the public regarding the Internet of Things as well, since 2015, he has been writing articles as a guest in Tech.co.
By going to Jason Hope’s main website, there is a tab there for ‘Grants’, in which he encourages high school and college students to create a good entrepreneurial scheme. After the proposal passes his criteria, the students can be given grants to help their ideas come to reality.
In addition to that, Jason provides financial help to various non-profit organizations based in the United States or abroad, such as the International Foundation for Education and Self Help, and Boys & Girls Club of Metropolitan Phoenix.
One of the largest groups that earns his generosity too is the Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence (SENS) Research Foundation, an institution in Mountain View, California that is continuously striving to find ways to stop aging. Based on diverse sources, Hope personally donated half a million dollars to the said organization in 2010, and then added another million later on. This amount has permitted the latter to construct its laboratory in Cambridge.
