Eric Lefkofsky has spent most of his career building a fortune and starting up companies of all sorts, but now he has a different goal in mind. He has created the analytics startup Tempus and set its sight on ending cancer once and for all. RIght now Tempus uses genomic sequencing and other data analyzing techniques to help improve the understanding doctors have how these diseases operate. Using these discoveries Tempus allows doctors to find the best course of treatment for each patient.
How He Plans To Change Things
Big Data has changed many things around us. Thanks to Big Data marketing companies have made themselves more efficient, stock analysts have a better understanding of exactly what they want to do and so on. The hope of Lefkofsky is that these techniques can change the way we look at medicine in a completely new light. Starting with cancer gives us a good beginning, but there is much more to do. An entirely new world of medicine may derive from the work done at Tempus.

Although he donates to many causes he considers helping children out to be one of his most important interests. Together with his wife Liz Lefkofsky he helps to bring about the changes he wants to see in the world and inspire people to give back to others.
