Eric Lefkofsky is the founder and owner of Tempus. Tempus is a medical research company that is changing the industry. Eric firmly believes that the healthcare field needs to adapt to new technology. Many of the most common medical treatments use old technology that is inefficient.
Eric attended college after graduating from high school. He thought he wanted to earn a business degree and work for a large company. However, he decided to pursue a medical degree to make a positive impact on others. After working as a medical professional, he decided to found a company. He saw the potential to improve the customer experience with preventive medicine. In many cases, patients go through years of treatment without positive results.
Few people thought Eric would succeed with Tempus. He struggled to gain funding for his idea, and he did not have prior experience in managing a company. Although the beginning stages were difficult, he managed to secure financing for the company. He developed new methods to combat various diseases.
Most medical companies require new funding regularly. Tempus recently ran out of cash, and Eric had to lobby for additional funds. He was able to secure the new funding by showing investors the progress that he has made. He is proud of his work so far, but he genuinely thinks his best years are ahead. Eric also takes time to mentor professionals in his city. Eric wants to improve the local community by spending time and money helping others. With his success as a business leader, he has won various awards for his work.
