Eric Lefkofsky: Groupon to Tempus and more

For those who may not know, Eric Lefkofsky has been creating a reality out of his dreams for some time. He is a co-founder of Groupon, the American business that has taken consumers by storm where they can find the best deals on products, clothes, jewelry and events. The business had an attempted offer from Google to buy it at six billion dollars but it was declined. During this time Eric Lefkofsky has gotten heavily involved in the philanthropist world where him and his wife have a foundation. They continue giving charitable gifts to help children in need.

Eric Lefkofsky is also the Tempus Ceo and founder. This company serves the need for doctors, researchers and patients to get their data on clinical or molecular information. Lefkofsky works close with this team to use this technology to create the access that is so importantly needed. From the time he was young, Eric Lefkofsky has always been fascinated in entrepreneurship. He was successful getting money from relatives for him and a friend to buy their first business called Brandon apparel. It didn’t take him long to develop an internet business called Starbelly which he ended up selling.

He has also been a funder himself by helping out the company known as ThePoint.com which we all know now as Groupon today. Eric Lefkofsky participated in the first round of funding and later found himself leading the organization to success. Tempus was one of his most recent businesses that started back in 2016.
