Jason Hope has proven himself as one of the nation’s most innovative and successful internet entrepreneurs. Known for founding internet startup Jawa, a premium mobile content provider, Hope has gone on to found a string of highly successful companies that have changed the way in which business is conducted on the internet today.
Jason Hope was born in Arizona in the 1970s. While growing up, he always had a strong interest in all things technological. He was a regular reader of publications such as Popular Science, The Lancet and other medical journals, which he found to be a fascinating source of wonder.
He elected to go to Arizona State University, where he majored in economics. After graduating with a degree in economics, in 1998, he founded Jawa. Within a few short years, he built the company into the premier mobile content provider in the United States. But this was not the most impressive aspect of the company’s success. While today it may sound mundane, in those days, many people didn’t even own cell phones. To come up with the idea and implement successfully a company that streamed content to mobile device users in the late-‘90s was an incredible stroke of genius.
Today Hope has largely stepped aside from the day-to-day management of his internet empire. He has taken to the internet, blogging and writing for a wide variety of websites dealing primarily with technological issues. He sees great promise in the coming technologies of The Internet of Things and views these technologies as a great opportunity for today’s entrepreneurs.
