Eric Lefkofsky Does It Again With Tempus

Tempus, a technology company founded by Brad Keywell and Eric Lefkofsky in 2015, recently became part of a three-way agreement to analyze the intimate clinical information of cancer patients owned by CancerLinQ, with help from Precision HealthAI.

Although CancerLinQ has control over one million patients’ worth of information, all of which recently had or still have at least one type of cancer, the company failed at analyzing the data and making sense of it. As such, the company realized it needed to branch out and solicit the services of one or more companies experienced in analyzing data and creating information technology infrastructure to better sort it in an organized fashion, and make meaningful inferences of it when the time came.

Eric Lefkofsky Has Known About The Potential Deal For Some Months

In a semi-recent interview, Eric Lefkofsky was asked about any potential deals Tempus had coming up in the near future. Mr. Lefkofsky brought up the fact that healthcare and technology conglomerate ASCO created CancerLinQ several years ago, with the intention of building up massive stores of patient information, with a plan to source such information directly from healthcare providers.

Even though ASCO’s own CancerLinQ was successful in that respect, the company has since failed to properly analyze the one million cancer patients’ accounts it maintains control over.

It was shortly after CancerLinQ compiled information from healthcare facilities that its executives realized CancerLinQ couldn’t analyze such data on its own, and felt forced to request help from companies experienced in the trade.

Some of the many benefits from CancerLinQ’s recent partnership include generating meaningful insights from cancer patients’ previously unresearched clinical files, more optimally designing clinical trials of various treatments, medications, and procedures in the future, and helping biotechnology companies get more from drug research, deelopment, and testing.

Although, at this point, it’s not clear how soon the benefits of such a corporate collaboration will come, executives across all three companies believe such benefits are inevitable.

About Tempus

Tempus was created by Eric Lefkofsky and Brad Keywell in 2015 in The Windy City – Chicago, Illinois. Today, Tempus is still operated out of Chicago, and deals in the collection and analysis of huge amounts of clinical and molecular data sourced from licensed healthcare professionals and their establishments.

Mr. Lefkofsky created Tempus with the goal of furthering the research of cancer, as he was unimpressed with the current state of cancer treatment after dealing with a loved one’s treatment for cancer just months before creating Tempus.

The company’s central competitive damage comes in its proprietary data analysis tools, which gather, touch up, and analyze data at the largest levels seen in today’s world of technology.

Eric Lefkofsky’s General Background

Eric Lefkofsky initially attended the University of Michigan for both a bachelor’s and juris doctorate degree. After he graduated from the University of Michigan, Mr. Lefkofsky started a business for the first time with former fellow students Brad Keywell, Brandon Apparel.

From there on, Eric Lefkofsky – Brad Keywell, too, to a lesser extent – rose to success. The pair created an Internet startup named Starbelly, sold it, then moved on to InnerWorkings, a mid-sized print perocurement service provider.

The pair made their first big break in 2005, when Echo Global Logistics was created. Echo rose to high levels of success, eventually becoming a member of the NASDAQ public stock exchange.

Mr. Eric Lefkofsky is arguably best known for Groupon, a company formerly knon as ThePoint.com, which he helped secure funding for early on in its lifetime. Groupon is currently one of the world’s most successful mobile applications.

 

 

Sanjay Shah Solo Capital

One of the leading investment firms in the world that is increasing fast and exhibiting a solid foundation for their specialties is called Solo Capital. They particularly target proprietary trading and consulting as well as sports consulting. As a company that rapidly increased their company within a matter of years, they certainly know how to run business smoothly and effectively. Sanjay Shah is the man behind the successful company, Solo Capital. He started it on a whim after hiring a few college graduates and trading partners and decided to hit the floor running. He has years of experience in the financial and accounting world, and implemented his skills into forming Solo Capital into a million dollar business. They now have an estimated net worth of $280 million, and it has allowed Shah to be able to semi-retire.

He was born in Kenya and traveled to Central London with his family and that is were it all began. In Central London, he attended King’s College where he studied medicine. After several classes he decided that it wasn’t for him. He didn’t want to become a doctor anymore. So he decided that he would turn his major to accounting. He studied accounting and finance, and graduated with his degree which would help lay the foundation for his future companycheck, Solo Capital. The firm escalated fast, and Shah was pleased with the outcome. After being able to sit back a bit, and semi-retire from the firm, he was able to invest his time in something very close to his heart, autism.

His son was two years old when him and his wife decided take him to a specialist to find out what was going on with his mannerisms. The diagnosis of autism was not something they were expected, not something they wanted. However, they understood that it’s not something that can be cured or fixed, but they could help aid in the research and causes of the neurological condition. With immense hard work and dedication, he was able to start his very own charity called Autism Rocks in 2014. He had years of experience in the music industry and in fact had many musician friends that were more than willing to help him out by staging concerts all over the world to help raise donations for the cause. Shah was able to donate his own funds before the start of Autism Rocks but he wanted to be able to do more. That’s why he invested his time and energy into his charity. He has donated money to some of the universities that have taken part in research and helping families cope with the effects of the condition. It can be a hard thing to muster but he wants to make it better.
