Jason Hope is a forward-thinking entrepreneur, fueled by technological progressivism and community mindedness.
Based in Scottsdale, Hope has lead the charge in Arizona toward a better future for all with philanthropic gestures such as a $500,000 pledge to SENS Foundation which is working to fight age-related diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Atherosclerosis. Jason Hope’s futurist mindset drives him to work with and invest in businesses that are pushing the envelope.
From the most seasoned tech businesses to the youngest budding innovators, Hope supports them all. One of the many ways he helps the next generation of entrepreneurs is through the grants Jason Hope has made available to seniors in high school as well as college students. These grants give students the ability to cultivate their ideas and focus on creating the technology of tomorrow.
One “technology of tomorrow” that Hope is particularly interested in is the Internet of Things, an industry projected to be worth 71 billion dollars by 2018. The Internet of Things is the interconnecting of smart devices in which each device collects information from sensors and other smart devices to perform tasks more efficiently. Simply put, the Internet of Things is a network of devices designed to make life simpler.
The Internet of Things has not yet become common place; however, Hope believes that wearable devices such as the Apple Watch and the Fitbit will begin to push it into the mainstream. Through promoting and educating about various aspects of the Internet of Things such as security and the implications that the Internet of Things can have on the average person’s life, Hope spreads awareness and sparks intrigue.
Jason Hope’s contributions to technology and the future have an enduring impact in Arizona and beyond. Hope continues to support the next generation tech leaders and facilitate their growth through generous investments and grant programs.
