Entrepreneurs are the lifeblood of the industries that they work within. Jason Hope works in the tech industry and he is well known for his work as the founder of Jawa. Jawa, a mobile communications company, put Hope on the map early on in his career and it has allowed him to focus on expanding his reach and his brand. Hope, a noted futurist and philanthropist, has more than a few ideas about what the future has in store for the tech industry. Let’s dig deep and see what he believes is coming down the pipeline as well as what makes him tick behind the scenes of his major projects.
We can start detailing what makes hope tick by looking at what he is supremely focused on at this point in time: the Internet of Things. AS an entrepreneur and, particularly, a futurist it is Hope’s goal to always be ahead of the latest trends within the industry. Knowing when and where to be when new technologies come to the forefront can make or break an entrepreneur. Hope is using his highly tuned skills in order to focus them on what he believes to be one of the most important innovations in the tech world of our generation: the Internet of Things.
The Internet of Things has become one of the biggest new industries that people aren’t quite aware exists. The Internet of Things is what we call the collection of technology that interfaces with the internet in our daily lives. Some know the Internet of Things under the term ‘smart technology’ or ‘wearable technology’ though these are restrictive terms. The Internet of Things is broad and sweeping and it encompasses everything you can see. Jason Hope believes that IoT will extend to cover everything in our lives which will peak in a truly ‘smart’ life.
Jason Hope believes in the Internet of Things for a number of different reasons. One of the main reasons why the IoT has so much potential, in his opinion, is that it will address the very real problems of waste and inefficiency in our lives. With the IoT everything will run smoother, faster, and more accurately on time. Along the way a byproduct will be a reduction in waste, thus making it a green technology as well. Think of public transit systems that are completely automated or first response teams that are cued up by smart technology. The possibilities are endless.
As an entrepreneur, outside of his work as a futurist, Hope likes to focus on keeping things simple. Hope says, “Over complicating ideas will only waste time and encourage failure.” This mindset has led Hope to have a razor sharp focus on all of his projects.
