Jason Hope Motivates Anti-Aging Researchers by Donating $500k to SENS Foundation

SENS Foundation is the greatest beneficiary of America’s futurist and philanthropist. When Jason Hope gave his $500,000 donation to the startup nearly nine years ago, he knew that a lot lay ahead. According to Jason, modern medicine plays an essential role in making sure that doctors and medical practitioners treat diseases after they occur. However, that is not what he aims when he donates. Jason Hope says that as long as researchers are treating problems after their occurrence, it will be difficult to attain eternal goals. He, however, admits that the quest of looking for permanent solutions is not the only thing that he is interested in.

He says that the companies he is sponsoring are now blindly chasing what they cannot attain. He agrees that although there are long-term goals, even now, better biotechnological devices can bring substantive change in the lives of many though the help of the Internet of Things (IoT). “Their involvement in anti-aging is not just about wanting to live forever. It’s about creating a longer, better quality of life,” Hope said. The Arizona entrepreneur added that the difference between his own mission is different from what traditional medicine can do. “Traditional medicine looks at treating these diseases after they occur. We want to focus on stopping these diseases from ever happening,” Hope said.

To ensure SENS Foundation is the right startup to put his money in, Jason Hope looked at a number of underlying factors. Chief among the underlying factors that Jason looked at was the SENS Foundation’s mission statement. After a critical look at it, it impressed him. Expert Jason Hope, an alumnus of W.P. Carey School of Business in Arizona, was particularly impressed by the foundation’s mission statement that in part reads ‘Transform the way the world researches and treats age-related diseases.” After reading that impressive message, Jason Hope gave his $500,000 debut donation to be used for the foundation’s ongoing research on the delay of the wearing out of living cells. Since his first donation, Jason has continued to fund the foundation to a tune of over $1 million.
