Jason Hope is not your average entrepreneur. Yes, he comes up with ideas that he turns into real-world business applications, but he focuses a lot of his energy on philanthropy and giving. When Hope finds an idea, cause, or organization that he believes in, he doesn’t just talk. Jason Hope lays his own money on the line and offers the kind of support that really makes a difference. A lot of his interests are in alignment with improvements in the technology and biotechnology sectors, and one foundation caught his eye many years ago.
That nonprofit foundation is the SENS Foundation, and it has been focusing on coming up with solutions to combat age-related diseases for many years. Back in 2010, Jason Hope donated $500,000 of his own money to the SENS Foundation, and he did so after following its work for some time. It was the work of Aubey de Grey, the co-founder and chief science officer of SENS, that first caught his attention. De Grey’s work surrounds rejuvenation biotechnology, which he is hoping will be able to stop disease and poor health conditions among the aging population of the world. Specifically, the SENS Foundation is working to eliminate cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and related conditions by stopping them before they ever take place.

Jason Hope saw that the foundation could use financial support and decided to step in and offer it. Hope appreciates the unique approach that the SENS Foundation is taking and believes that traditional medicine has been glossing over possible ways to treat disease at its source for way too long. He was educated at Arizona State University where he earned a finance degree. He also received an MBA after continuing his education at the college’s W.P. Carey School of Business. His entrepreneurial savvy and willingness to work hard have led to his success, and he has also played the role of an advisor and mentor to many others who hope to make a difference in the world. He loves to support organizations that are not afraid to push the boundaries o our scientific knowledge and has pledged to continue to do so as much as possible.
