Jason Hope predicts massive investment in Internet of Things technologies

In business, as the saying goes, it is always best to be first, be smarter or to cheat. Since most ethical technology business people are against cheating in any circumstance, that only leads two options. One must either be smarter, or be in the right place at the right time, exactly as a new trend is taking off from the ground.

Nowhere has this been truer than in the area of technological innovation. Jason Hope is one of America’s most prolific tech entrepreneurs. After having founded Jawa, the first premium mobile content streaming service in the United States, Hope has gone on to have a superlative career, creating a multitude of highly successful startups and creating business models and nobody had ever seen before. It is not an exaggeration to say the Hope is one of the most talented entrepreneurs that the American Southwest has ever seen.

It is for this reason that when Hope talks, the internet listens. Recently, Hope has stepped down from his role as the manager of day-to-day operations over his empire and has begun blogging for a number of outlets about a wide variety of topics. One of these has been the topic of the coming revolution that will be heralded by the Internet of Things.

Hope believes that the technologies collectively known as the Internet of Things will have such a transformative effect that it will completely revolutionize the ways in which everyday Americans live their lives. Hope believes that, by 2020, more than six trillion dollars will have been invested in Internet of Things technologies. This represents one of the most enticing opportunities for entrepreneurs that has been seen since the Industrial Revolution. Hope believes that people who can get in on the ground floor, creating innovative technologies using Internet of Things concepts, will be able to be first movers in industries that may be the multibillion-dollar businesses of tomorrow.

Hope points out that many people are aware of the most visible Internet-of-Things technologies. Things like smart buildings, self-driving cars, refrigerators, stoves and dishwashers that automatically operate when needed are all things that most people are aware will be the commonplace technologies of tomorrow. But Hope believes that there are many niche markets that individuals can capitalize on in the near-term future.

Hope believes that those who are capable of creating mobile applications that can seamlessly interface with everyday products, making them run with higher degrees of efficiency or more ease of use, will be able to create entire industries overnight, potentially becoming the Googles, Facebooks or Amazons of the next 20 years.
