Jason Hope has always been interested in innovation and the advancement of technology. When he heard of some amazing new research that the SENS Foundation was doing, he had to get on board. In 2010, investor, entrepreneur, and futurist Jason Hope donated $500,000 to the SENS Foundation to help with their research into anti-aging technologies. Since then, he has donated over $1 million more to the foundation, helping them to build new facilities and purchase new equipment to help their research.
The SENS Foundation was founded in 2009 with the express purpose of finding ways to defeat aging. Now, this is not the infomercial creams that you will see on late-night television. SENS does not want to come up with some potion to help you get rid of wrinkles. They are focused much more on innovating with old technologies and creating new ones to target specific cells and illnesses within the body to root out aging at its source. Naturally, this intrigued Jason Hope.

With his donation, the SENS Foundation started new research into AGE-breakers, a type of technology that is meant to find and destroy AGE particles. These particles, also known as advanced glycation end-products, are floating around in our bodies and causing our tissues and organs to age as they normally would. With certain illnesses and diseases, such as Alzheimer’s these particles are even more prevalent in our body and can cause massive damage and degeneration. AGE-breakers would target these particular cells and render them unable to cause any more damage to our bodies. Jason Hope’s Hard Line Stance on the Internet of Things
Jason Hope was really focused on this foundation because they were actively working to help improve people’s lives while also looking at ways to innovate technologies. They were not just trying to find a Fountain of Youth, but they are actively working to fight diseases that are prevalent in our society. It is not just about the anti-aging to Jason, but it is really about the out-of-the-box and different way that the foundation is going about it. Jason Hope Pledges $500,000
