There is no denying the fact that we are alive in the unbridled age of technological advancement. Over the past decade alone, there have been massive leaps and bounds in the field of technology that have changed every facet of our lives. From the way that we approach medicine to the concept of entertainment itself, technology is helping to revitalize the world and reinvent it into a new form. Jason Hope, an entrepreneur from Arizona, has been among those in the tech industry who are working hard to change the world. Hope made his mark as an entrepreneur in mobile communications and now he is working to change the world forever by endorsing the prominent research of the SENS Foundation, an anti-aging research facility based out of California.
The SENS Foundation was established in 2009 as a facility focused on addressing some of the biggest problems known to mankind: age-related illness. For as long as humanity has been around, we have assumed that aging and the problems with it are just part of life. However, the SENS Foundation, led by CSO Dr. Aubrey De Grey, has long-since determined this not to be the case. Jason Hope, granted flexibility to pursue investments in subjects which he is passionate about, quickly came to the same conclusion.
After extensive research, Hope would come to find the SENS Foundation in 2010. Hope would reach out to Dr. Aubrey De Grey and the two would strike out a relationship that showcased their similar goals. Jason Hope would eventually end up writing a donation to the SENS Foundation to the tune of $500,000 in order to rejuvenate their research division so as to help find solutions to some of life’s biggest problems. Hope’s donation immediately went to helping pioneer advanced research in the fight against diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and even Arteriosclerosis.
Hope is not the only tech-based entrepreneur to highlight the value of biotechnology, but he is certainly one of the few who has been willing to put his fortune on the line in support of the subject. Aubrey De Grey and Mike Kope, CEO at the SENS Foundation, both highlighted the importance of Hope’s donation. They pointed out how important the donation was and how it would quickly go toward addressing specific problems in our elderly demographic. With any luck, and a lot of hard work, Hope and the SENS Foundation will be changing lives for years to come.
