Jason Hope is an entrepreneur, futurist, investor and philanthropist located in Scottsdale Arizona. He believes that technology is an incredibly powerful tool and is using technology and computer systems in his latest entrepreneurial work.
Jason Hope believes strongly in what is called The Internet of Things. The Internet of Things is the connected technology that allows devices to sync together. This allows devices to share connectivity, data and to reduce waste. Hope believes that The Internet of Things is the way of the future and will be where technological advancement gets its biggest gains.
The Internet of things is more than just connecting a smart phone to a computer, but rather connecting a coffee machine to lights, mapping out bus and train routes and changing the way that technology can really shape the way that we live. Not only will it affect the lives of people in city and suburban areas, but advancements in GPS and emergency tracking will allow rural areas to see the benefit of the Technology of Things as well.
Hope’s educational background with a B.S. in Finance and a MBA in Business, both from Arizona State University, may not illuminate his passion for technology. However, they have helped him in his entrepreneurial exploits which have lead to his passion for technology. Hope offers grants to Arizona high school seniors and college students that share his passion for technology. Philanthropically, Hope spends time and money on SENS Foundation and offers up advice on finding a charity that best fits your passions on his website.
