To say that the tech world is moving quickly would be an understatement. We are seeing massive changes in our day-to-day lives on an almost daily basis thanks to the work that is being done by talented professionals throughout the world. Jason Hope is one of those professionals that is helping to usher in a new era of technological advancement. Hope is a renowned futurist, a technological entrepreneur, and he carries an MBA from the W.P. Carey School of Business. To put this all simply, Hope is here to help usher in a change so let’s go ahead and see where it is he is trying to guide us. You can find Jason Hope on Twitter @JasonHope for latest updates.
Jason Hope was born and raised in Arizona. He attended school at Arizona State University where he knocked out his finance degree. Hope would then go on to graduate from the W.P. Carey School of Business with his MBA. With degrees in hand, Hope would waste no time getting started in the entrepreneurial world. Before most of his former classmates could blink, Hope had successfully founded a mobile communications company that proved vital in the industry. Now, with successes under his belt, Hope is angling to bring about change that will last long after he has retired. But where is Jason Hope focusing his efforts?
As a futurist, there are two areas that will always be fascinating: the internet and biotechnology. For that reason, Hope’s focus is currently resting on two major concepts: the role of biotechnology in helping to find cures for aging and the role that the internet will play in our day-to-day lives as smart technology continues to develop. Let’s quickly take each concept point-by-point.
Like many other futurists, Jason Hope doesn’t necessarily believe that aging has to be intrinsic to the human experience. In fact, promising advancements in the biotechnology field by facilities like the SENS Foundation prove that changes could be coming sooner than later. Hope believes so strongly in the SENS Foundation that he personally signed off on a $500,000 donation to their work.
Regarding the role of the internet in our future, Jason Hope knows that the Internet of Things will be the next great advancement that humanity takes. The Internet of Things insists that the internet will become such an ingrained part of our lives that we are always connected to it, thus making our lives easier and more efficient as a result.
