“Technology connects and interconnects people, places, and things.” said Jason Hope in a recent interview. “… the future of society relies on technology.” Jason Hope is an entrepreneur from Arizona who created Jawa, a mobile communications company that improved text messaging. He has investments in several tech companies and blogs frequently about advances in technology. The following are some of his thoughts about his work, his investments, and technology.
Marketing Your Business
Jason Hope has a presence on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Medium, and Tumblr. He praises the effectiveness of marketing efforts using social media: “I believe in using marketing strategies that keep people connected and social media never fails as a method to generate new business or make business connections.”
Giving a Helping Hand to the Next Generation
“Coming up with a good idea is just the beginning.” notes Jason in a post, “Finding the funding to get that idea off the ground can be the hardest part.” On his website, Jason has a grant application page directed to high school and college students. He encourages those with an idea and a business plan to submit an application for a grant of $500 to $5,000.
Investing in a Unique Approach to Anti-Aging Research
The SENS Foundation received a $500,000 donation from Jason Hope to continue its essential research into anti-aging processes. Dr. Aubrey de Grey of the SENS Foundation has isolated TTR, a protein that becomes an extracellular aggregate that increases in size and density as we age. Many believe the TTR protein and its aggregating function causes dysfunction in our organs as we age. Jason says of their work: “While most organizations focus on curing disease, SENS Foundation goes beyond treatment and uses technology to slow down or reverse the aging process. …This is truly life-changing.”
Attitude is Key to Success
Entrepreneurs, by nature, are experimenters, out ahead of everyone else. It is a sometimes isolating path in life that has more than its share of disappointments and failures. Like many successful entrepreneurs before him, Jason Hope always stays positive and keeps moving: “I never let failure or doubt cripple my big picture ideas. …if something doesn’t work; I always move on to the next project.”
Richard Branson, one of the most successful and celebrated entrepreneurs of our time, once said, “There is no greater thing you can do with your life and your work than follow your passions – in a way that serves the world and you.” Like Branson, Jason Hope is following his passions and in doing so, improving the future quality of life for us all.
