Jason Hope: Entrepreneur, Philanthropist and Biotech Pioneer

Jason Hope is a philanthropist, investor and technological expert based in Scottsdale, Arizona. While his career experience is varied, Mr. Hope is best known for his pioneering role in the field of anti-aging technologies. There are treatments available for an increasing number of medical conditions in the modern world, but aging has traditionally been seen as a process that can’t be treated, slowed or reduced. Jason Hope, however, disagrees.

Jason Hope has dedicated himself to helping people live longer by slowing down or reversing aging, and he has worked towards this goal by donating to cutting-edge non-profits that have the potential to revolutionize how we age. Most notably, Mr. Hope donated $500,000 in December 2010 to the SENS Foundation, which seeks to help people fight aging by providing public access to anti-aging technologies. SENS goes about this primarily by conducting biotechnology research. Biotechnology refers mainly to the study of living things in order to create new, assistive medical technologies, although the biotech sector also encompasses research into improved methods of food production.

Mr. Hope’s donation has gone towards the production of ‘AGE-breaker’ medicines, which block the production of glycation end-products that contribute to a variety of age-related health problems. Some of the $500,000 was specifically used to fund a laboratory program in the United Kingdom that will study these harmful end-products. If it yields significant results, this research could help dramatically prolong human life.

Jason Hope grew up in Tempeh, Arizona, and after earning a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from a state university, he founded several successful Arizona-based technology startups. Aside from his contributions to the SENS Foundation, Mr. Hope has also donated to the Andre Agassi Foundation, which works to improve public education, as well as Teach for America and the Worldwide Orphans Foundation. He has also contributed to local organizations like the Arizona Science Center and the local Boy’s and Girl’s Club. Due to his important philanthropic work and his bio-technical expertise, Jason Hope has gained a reputation as a futurist and a technological expert, and he brings a dedicated, hands-on approach to both his charitable and entrepreneurial enterprises.
