The Internet of Things is a concept where every type of device is able to connect to the internet and exchange information with other devices. Jason Hope, a technologist in Scottsdale, Arizona, has written extensively about how this will soon completely change how businesses operate and how people live their lives. He expects that this next wave of technology will be the biggest event in the industry for years to come.
Jason Hope has said that right now The Internet of Things is mostly just associated with smartphones, computers, and a few appliances. Soon, though, he said that it will touch on every facet of our lives from our morning routines to commutes to how we work. There is already major competition between companies to enter this space by creating the most useful devices and apps that will have the broadest appeal.
Jason Hope graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor of Science in Finance, and that school’s W.P. Carey School of Business with an MBA. He went on to earn his fortune in the mobile technology sector. He continues to invest in startup technology firms that are looking to disrupt entire industries with innovative products and idea.
As a philanthropist, Jason gives back through a variety of causes. He supports educational causes as well as mentors college and high school students who seek to be entrepreneurs themselves. He also supports medical research such as the SENS Foundation to which he donated $500,000 to help in their research into anti-aging therapies.
