The SENS Foundation has been working tirelessly for nearly a decade to come up with a new and innovative solution to restore the youth of millions of people across the world. Started in 2009, this foundation was created for the sole purpose of finding ways to create anti-aging technologies, but it cannot do this on its own. That is why certain donors, such as Jason Hope, mean so much to foundations like these.
In 2010, Jason Hope helped SENS get its start when he donated $500,000 for a new facility and equipment in Cambridge, England. Hope is a futurist, entrepreneur, investor, and overall lover of technology, and the prospects of the projects at SENS interested him to the point where he knew he had to be a part of it. Hope has been in the technology game ever since he graduated from Arizona State University. He has worked hard to research new technologies and find trends that other investors cannot find. He has gained worldwide recognition for his knowledge of the internet of things and other innovations and trends that were unprecedented just 10 years ago. He created a new mobile communications company and has a large portfolio of successful investments in several startup companies. In 2010, Hope wanted to turn from businessman to philanthropist, and he got his start with SENS.
It was not just the fact that SENS wanted to help better the lives of millions that got Hope on board. Jason Hope is attracted to anything involving emerging technologies and finding new solutions to old problems. This is exactly what SENS is trying to accomplish. They wanted to start looking at what causes aging and degeneration and find some sort of biotechnology that will stop these properties in their tracks.
With Hope’s donations, SENS has started researching particles that they call AGE-breakers. AGEs, also known as advanced glycation end-products, are little cells floating around in our bodies that cause degeneration of tissues and normal wear and tear on our bodies. After a time, so much damage is done that we simply stop living (what we generally call “dying of old age.”) Certain degenerative diseases, like Alzheimer’s, heighten the activity of these AGEs. SENS is focusing on fighting these little particles and the diseases that make them work faster. Jason Hope’s Hard Line Stance on the Internet of Things
SENS is on its way to make a more comfortable and longer life for everyone on the planet, and it is because of donations from people like Jason Hope that make all of this possible. Jason Hope Pledges $500,000
