Internet entrepeneur Jason Hope is one of the people who has invested the most in the concept of anti-aging technology. With an initial grant of $500,000, he helped jump-start an organization called SENS, which is a medical research organization focused on addressing the root causes of aging. They believe that, through their research, they can greatly extend the length and quality of human life, to which I can say….it’s about time!
If human beings spent half as much time working on this issue as we spend working on new ways to kill each other, we would all live to be a thousand. Just a thought. Apparently, Jason Hope has a similar attitude, as he says that he considers this work to be essential to the advancement of medicine. He went on to state that they are not just important: they are the future. Assuming that SENS is able to meet their goals, this would literally be true.

The organization has been working on ways to stop or reverse the hardening of arteries often seen in aging. To put it in simple terms, the arteries are made up of cells, and those cells are held in place by proteins. These proteins are themselves held together by molecular bonds. As a person ages, those molecular bonds often multiply and cause the arteries to become hard and brittle. This degradation of the arteries is one of the most critical factors of the aging process.

Growing up in Tempe, Arizona, Jason Hope attended Arizona State University, where he received a degree in finance. He also attended the W.P. Carey School Of Business (Also at ASU), from which he received an MBA. He has made his living as a successful investor, and also described himself as a “futurist”. When you look at the kinds of things he has invested in, you can see why. The technology of the future is obviously where this man puts his money, and that doesn’t seem like a bad bet to make.

We can only hope that such research will continue, and that there will continue to be people of vision to support it. Apart from his support of SENS, Jason Hope also runs a grant program that literally anyone can apply for. All you need is a good business idea. He has helped a lot of startup entrepeneurs to get their ideas off the ground, offering grants anywhere from $500 to $5000. Jason Hope Pledges $500,000
