As one of the founders of Groupon, Eric knows quite a few things about helping people. The original idea behind Groupon was to help people get deals on items and services that they might not be able to get elsewhere. It was something that he saw as a great feat and something that he worked hard to accomplish. The hard work that he did, though, paid off and he saw a lot of success with Groupon. He considered the fact that he was now a billionaire and he chose to simply live from the profits that he made as a result of Groupon for the rest of his life. Eric at Facebook .
Something changed, though, to bring him out of the semi-retirement that he was enjoying from the success of Groupon. When his wife was diagnosed with cancer and there were no guarantees that the doctors could give her, he chose to do more with his life and make a difference with people who had cancer. He took a huge switch from understanding how to get things for cheap to being able to help people who had cancer. That is where the idea behind Tempus was born and he knew that he was going to be able to make things better for people who have cancer.
Lefkofsky teamed up with a professional geneticist and they worked hard together to be able to come up with a solution to genetic problems. While they are not necessarily aiming their sights at curing cancer, they are doing what they can to make things better for the people who have it. Tempus is a brand that they have developed and that is working hard to make cancer less of a burden to the people who have it and to the families who are supporting them.
With the help of his lead geneticist who comes with the biological expertise, Eric Lefkofsky is able to use his business expertise to make this business nearly as successful as Groupon. With this, he is going to make the business both bigger and better for people who have cancer and need his help.
