In order to become a successful entrepreneur, one must be able to follow the paths of the people that come before them. In the tech field, there are very few entrepreneurs that are doing what Jason Hope is doing. Jason Hope is a graduate of Arizona State University who has been working in the tech field for several years now. Hope made his impact as the founder of the mobile communication company Jawa. Jawa has been such a success that Hope has managed to focus more and more on expanding his scope and pushing the Internet of Things into the public spotlight.
Look around your house at all of the devices that are attached to the internet. Now, consider a world where all of your local devices have an internet connection. The Internet of Things is an umbrella term that refers to the way that all of this technology interacts improves our lives through efficiency and functionality. Right now the IoT is confused often with smart technology and that is beholden mostly to the entertainment industry. Hope wants to make sure people realize that the IoT can be used as a life changing technology.
The way that Hope believes the Internet of Things will be changing lives is simple: he thinks that it is a technology that will be embraced by every level of our every-day life. From emergency response vehicles like fire engines and ambulances to taxis and waste disposal, the IoT can improve the efficiency of everything we do. Time will be wasted less. Materials will be wasted less and our lives will get easier as a result. Hope doesn’t want the IoT to be confused with a gimmick and he is actively imploring companies to start getting involved sooner than later.
Right now outside of the Internet of Things Hope is focused largely on working with other enterprising young entrepreneurs in order to take their ideas to the next level. Hope says, “I take in business ideas through my official website and I cherry-pick the most interesting ideas that I see.” Hope goes on to explain, “The future of the technology industry depends on the great ideas that our young aspiring entrepreneurs come up with.” Hope is currently giving out small grants to the ideas that he deems have the most potential and entrepreneurs are pushed to consider working together with Hope to get their concepts up and off of the ground.
