It’s rare to think about success. Most success starts with a simple idea, and that idea is then acted upon. Acting upon an idea can be intimidating, but a true entrepreneur at heart is not intimidated by “impossible”. Lefkofsky is a true entrepreneur. From saving friends and family on trips with Groupon to advertising for top companies, Lefkofsky has founded and co-founded some of the leading money savers and tech software to date.
Graduating from the University of Michigan in 1991 with honors was just the start of a very promising career. Lefkofsky is also a licensed attorney, graduating in 1993 with his Juris Doctor from the University of Michigan Law School.
Most recently, Eric Lefkofsky is the co-founder and CEO of Tempus. Tempus is a medical technology company that is innovative in building a library of molecular and clinical data on a personalized operating system designed to make that data accessible and useful for cancer treatments. Tempus utilizes genomic and transcriptomic sequencing to help physicians and doctors alike to achieve a better understanding of each individual’s tumor.
Lefkofsky also started a charitable trust, the Lefkofsky Family Foundation which is a private foundation established back in 2006. The purpose is to advance high-impact programs, initiatives, and research that enhance human life quality in the communities that they serve. Eric’s heart for humanity is evident in his works and his words. Earlier this year, Mr. Lefkofsky posted a blog on his website that shows the heart that beats in this man, “It would be nearly impossible to hurt someone if you could feel their pain…Almost every ounce of pain we cause as a people would be muted by the fact that it’s harder to cause pain when you feel it yourself.” – Eric Lefkofsky
