As a renowned futurist and tech enthusiast, Hope is all about looking ahead to the changes that are rolling through the industry. Right now, Hope is focusing his attention and his energy on the work being done at the SENS Foundation. Hope has found that there is an allure to the biotechnology industry and it is more than about profit, it is about the health of humanity for years to come.The SENS Foundation is an anti-aging research clinic located in California. The SENS Foundation is a non-profit that is led by CEO Mike Kope and the work of Dr. Aubrey de Grey. Dr. de Grey was notably one of the most exciting aspects of the foundation, according to Hope.
Hope said that he had always been interested in the work that Dr. Aubrey de Grey had been handling and that he felt obliged to get involved when he had the funds to do so. For that reason, Hope went ahead and donated $500,000 to the SENS Foundation in order to help progress their research.The donation that Hope had made was announced during a philanthropic dinner called ‘Breakthrough Philanthropy’. The event was hosted by Peter Thiel and the Thiel Foundation at the Palace of Fine Arts located in San Francisco, CA. Jason Hope was in attendance and Peter Thiel was there as well.
Thiel called Hope’s enthusiasm for the work and his corresponding donation one of the true highlights of the night. Hope also made sure to make his voice known regarding the importance of the work that the SENS Foundation is doing. Hope says, “The advancement of rejuvenation biotechnologies is not only extremely important, but it is the future.” Ultimately, Jason Hope’s donation will help the team at the SENS Foundation to focus on finding preventative measures for addressing diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and Arteriosclerosis. Dr. de Grey and CEO Mike Kope know that cures are important, but they also know that it is important to work on finding preventative measures to help offset these horrible diseases from becoming a reality for advanced age people.
