The Co-Founder of Tempus to Fight Cancer Eric Lefkofsky

Eric Lefkofsky, is an entrepreneur in Chicago, Illinois. He became the CEO and the wealthy co-founder of Tempus. Tempus is a knowledgeable company which helps doctors specify treatments of cancer by collecting, sorting, and analyzing clinical and molecular data. Tempus builds these data and an operating system to help advance cancer treatments. They continue to improve patient outcomes to reexamine how they are used in a clinical setting. Their top goal is for each patient to benefit from the treatments of others in the database.

He thoroughly explains that for many years, doctors have needed clinical data for several things to treat cancer effectively. These specific data need to match the treatments of the individual by the kinds of treatments they need by the type of cancer they are dealing with. So, if a researcher is looking for more information when a patient is suffering from breast or stomach cancer, they know the right kinds of treatments that will work for them at the level they need, along with other drugs that they are currently on. To this day, Eric Lefkofsky invests so much time to fight the treatments of cancer so they will be successful.

Early in his career, Eric Lefkofsky studied law and graduated from the University of Michigan, receiving his Juris Doctor degree. He is also a trustee at the Art Institute of Chicago and a trustee of Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. Shortly after, finishing law, Eric and Bradley Keywell, a partner he worked with, founded an Internet company, called Starbelly, that specialized in promotional products. This, in turn, helped to create the company of Groupon, a highly-successful global e-commerce marketplace, which is a tech industry, and is still one of the most successful Internet IPOs today.

Eric Lefkofsky and his wife Liz Lefkofsky, started their own private foundation called the Lefkofsky Family Foundation. Their purpose forming this foundation is to help support the source of giving, causes around the world, and educational organizations. They also take their time to help progress the success of many lives in communities they reach out to in Chicago.
