There are so many anti-aging creams and remedies on the market today. However, these products all focus on making the body appear to have less age when really all they are doing is tightening skin and changing cosmetic appearances rather than truly stopping the degeneration of tissues that come with age. There is no amount of topical creams and elixirs that can actually stop aging. True anti-aging is currently being researched in the labs, and foundations like the SENS Foundation is coming close to finding anti-aging remedies. However, they could not even come close to this feat without the help of investors like Jason Hope.
In 2010, Jason Hope started his donations to the SENS Foundation with a $500,000 deposit to help with building a new lab in England. Since then, SENS has been able to make some real progress on new AGE-breaking technology. AGE is an acronym for advanced glycation end-products, which are essentially the cells within our body that can cause aging. New technologies are being created to target and destroy these AGEs. The foundation is also working to stop diseases that cause degeneration of the body and brain, such as Alzheimer’s since this is probably the easiest way to stop rapid aging at the source.
Jason Hope was attracted to this foundation for many reasons. He has always been a futurist and lover of new and innovative technologies. Hope liked the fact that this foundation is not simply working to create a new topical cream that promises everlasting youth. He likes that the foundation is working with the scientific community to find a cure for real problems. He also likes that they are working at anti-aging in a way that many other companies have not even thought of. Since 2010, Hope has donated an additional $1 million to the cause, and his philanthropy does not look like it is going to stop anytime soon. Jason Hope’s Hard Line Stance on the Internet of Things
Being a lover of the future and technology has also caused Jason Hope to spend his gains, mainly earned from investing in new and innovative startup companies, in several other science-based philanthropies. In his short time since graduating from Arizona State, he has given hundreds of thousands of dollars to the True Colors Fund, the Arizona Science Center, Family Health International, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, the Boys & Girls Club, and the Tony Hawk Foundation. With entrepreneurs and philanthropists like Jason Hope out there supporting causes like SENS, fearing the future is no longer something we have to do. Jason Hope Pledges $500,000
