Jason Hope is Arizona’s leading entrepreneur and investor. Jason grew up in Tempe and was awarded a degree in finance from Arizona State University and MBA from Arizona State University’s W.P. Carey School of Business. Jason Hope is known for making predictions about where technology will be in the future.
Jason Hope first began his business career in mobile communication technology because of its ability to reach a large audience and was the one that was guaranteed to be changed. It still has room to grow and improve. His first venture in the field was selling text message services. Jason Hope makes a living through his portfolio of investments which include companies such as Digital Media Solutions, Computer and Business Information Systems, and Interactive Software.
Like most entrepreneurs, Jason Hope had some fears that he would be successful but he ended up being profitable right from the beginning, which convinced him to expand his portfolio.
In 2010, Jason Hope donated $500,000 to the Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence Research Foundation, which works to change the way the world researches and treats age-related disease. Jason Hope believes he is successful because he always keeps an eye on the future and paying attention to the potential technology has to make our lives better.
Like most technology users, Jason Hope rarely reads any paper books but instead reads electronic books including one of his recent favorites “Higher Intake of Whole Grains Associated with Lower Risk of Major Chronic Diseases and Death.” Jason Hope is working to find ways that will accelerate human intelligence using technology.
Hope was recently asked about a purchase that helped with his business, but instead of a purchase it was actually the selling of his house that helped him. By selling it, he freed up some time and money resources, allowing him the ability to help his local community and inspire those who are interested in the future of technology.
The one thing Jason Hope is proud about the most is his involvement with the SENS foundation and their work with anti-aging, which uses technology and not just treatments.
