(Recap) Cancer is something that ruins the lives of many, yet nobody claims to have a cure, sadly enough there is nothing to prevent cancer and the number of people being diagnosed with cancer just keeps growing. It’s estimated that by the year 2024 more than 19 million will be diagnosed with cancer. The good news is that Tempus is working to fight this battle, Eric Lefkofsky founded Tempus this company’s main goal is to change how cancer care is delivered. With companies like Tempus they’re hoping to drive the cost of cancer care down by more than half.
Eric Lefkofsky was born in Southfield, Michigan in the year of 1969. Education wise Lefkofsky is pretty impressive he graduated from the University of Michigan located in Ann Arbor, Michigan he did this with high honors in 1991. Still not educationally satisfied two years later Lekofsky earned his Juris Doctor degree by attending the University of Michigan Law School. Even though he completed this degree he didn’t go into the law field rather he went into the online field, even though he was born and raised in Michigan he spent many of his adult years in Chicago, Illinois which is currently where Tempus headquarters are located.
Outstandingly enough Lefkofsky started off by selling carpets while he was still attending college. He has truly dabbled in almost every type of work there is. Not only is Lefkofsky Co-founder of Tempus but he also had a hand in finding Groupon, and (ECHO) also known as Echo Global Logistics.
This truly goes to show that even if you’re far from your dream goal, you can still accomplish whatever it is that you want. Starting out as a simple carpet salesman and turning into a Co-founder for many different companies shows you not to be scared of anything. Even though Lefkofsky is less than 50 he’s done things that many just dream of.
