Technology and innovation have a new meaning today than it did 50 years. Back then, new technologies were all about bettering mankind and making our lives easier every day. It was about helping us to further our education and support the sciences and medical fields. Now, new technologies have become the source of our vanity and idleness. Many people spend hours a day taking pictures of themselves or writing all about their exploits on social media. Millionaires boast about their gains online, and children spend more time texting and playing games than playing outside. Luckily, there are still some people who believe technologies can still be used for more than just selfies and posts. Entrepreneur Jason Hope Invests in Research Against Aging
eJason Hope is an entrepreneur, futurist, an avid investor in all sorts of innovations and emerging technologies. He started a mobile communications company when he left Arizona State, and he has since been investing in new companies and startups devoted to new and innovative ideas in the tech sector. Jason is not just another millionaire that wants to make a quick buck, however. He really wants to help the world to create a better future, and there is no better example than his recent philanthropy and support of organizations like the SENS Foundation.

The SENS Foundation was created in 2009 to develop and promote access to cures for age-related diseases. The foundation wants to create a way that we can live healthier, longer, and more quality lives than ever before in human history. Their general theory is that there is no actual cure to aging, but there are ways to stop the diseases that degenerate the skin and organs, which leads to earlier death and a rapid aging of individuals that would otherwise live long lives. It is this new approach to anti-aging that attracted Hope to this venture.
