Eric Lefkofsky Transitions from Daily Deals to Curing Cancer

Most tech entrepreneurs would do one of two things after earning nearly 2 billion dollars in less than 20 years. They would either expand their horizons and partner with bigger earning companies or rest on their laurels in a very comfortable early retirement. Eric Lefkofsky chose none of the above. He decided to leave the mega wealth building tech world for a more philanthropist inspired project. Battling, treating and curing cancer.

With a career that began with rapid success. Lefkofsky is redirecting his talents and brilliance toward a noble cause. One of three children of Jewish descent, he grew up in humble Southfield, Michigan and graduated from the University of Michigan in 1991 with honors and then went on to receive his juris doctorate from U of M in 1993.

After launching several successful internet start ups, the first of which he and a college friend began shortly after graduation. Over the next 15 years Lefkofsky was at the forefront of many successful tech ventures before launching ThePoint.com in 2007, the name was changed in 2008 to Groupon and within 2 years was the fastest growing company in history as reported by Forbes. In 2010 Google offered 6 billion dollars to buy out Groupon but the offer was declined.

Eric Lefkofsky served as CEO of Groupon from August 2013 until November 2015. In 2016 he began focusing his efforts into building Tempus, a tech company building an operational system aimed at battling cancer.

An innovative company with an aggressive approach of providing database services solely for cancer research and analysis. The purpose of which is to provide doctors with a resource of data in which they can compare afflicted patients DNA allowing them the information to assist in individualizing the best therapy possible.

This amazing new medical resource will aid doctors in the ability to prolong cancer patients lives and provides promise to potentially even cure cancer in some cases. Lefkofsky knows from his many years of success in the technology industry that innovation is progressing at an amazing pace but the medical field did not seem to be keeping up or benefiting at that same pace. So he decided to do what most successful entrepreneurs do, fill a need and improve an outdated process.

With Tempus in full operation, doctors can now take the mountains of data they collect and utilize Eric’s technology to analyze and progress from such data.
