Anti-aging has been a pursuit of mankind since we can remember. Ancient philosophers contemplated being immortal and in the company of the gods. Spanish conquistadors searched for the Fountain of Youth in the newly discovered Americas. Now, scientists are taking a more contemporary approach to searching for what makes us age and stopping that process from ever starting. One of the organizations currently trying to break this wall is the SENS Foundation, and thanks to a modest donation by entrepreneur, futurist, and investor Jason Hope, they have just gotten a little bit closer to finding what makes us age.

The SENS Foundation was created in 2009 to find a way to develop biotechnologies that allow for the rejuvenation of human tissues and organs. They specifically want to address age-related diseases that cause accelerated degeneration of our bodies. Certain diseases, such as Alzheimer’s are the root cause for millions of people dying earlier than most, and it is these diseases that SENS wants to stop in their tracks. Entrepreneur Jason Hope Invests in Research Against Aging
Jason Hope has always been interested in technology. He graduated from Arizona State University with his MBA, and after spending some time learning about new technologies and everything that sector had to offer, he created a mobile communications device. In his short career, Hope has made a name for himself by finding and being able to predict trends that technologies will take, and he is known internationally for his savvy investment strategies in new and emerging businesses.

With an eye on the future and profitable investments, Jason Hope looked to the SENS Foundation as a great place to spend his time and money. After all, SENS was attempting to make people’s lives more comfortable in old age through the discovery and use of new technologies. This opportunity was just too interesting to pass up. Hope donated $500,000 to SENS in 2010, and he has contributed over $1 million to the cause since then. It is not the fact that the foundation is trying to create anti-aging abilities, but the out-of-the-box and innovative ways in which they are attempting to do it that has piqued Hope’s interests.
