Building His Fortune
Eric Lefkofsky has managed to build his fortune by working on a variety of different startups. Whenever he manages to succeed in his ventures, he takes that money and place sit towards something with a greater purpose. While other billionaires use their fortunes to attempt to enrich themselves, he’s using his wealth to solve a variety of world issues. Everything from childhood poverty to cancer is on his list, but he doesn’t have plans to quit this anytime soon.
The Next Step Forward
The next step for Lefkofsky is to find a way to help his Lefkofsky Foundation further the causes he holds dear. At past periods, he focused largely on finding a way to help out children in need. His foundation gave charities around the world the money needed to help out those who needed the help. Outside of his work at his foundation, he has also made a name for himself for his work on his new company Tempus. With his help, he envisions Tempus turning into something much more respectable than what most people usually envision when they think of cancer research.
Tempus tries to fight cancer by trying an entirely new approach to the disease. Normally, most cancer treatment plans are cookie cutter solutions designed without any thought given to the individual. However, this new approach is specifically designed to make sure that each person’s genetic sis taken into account before any treatment begins. The effectiveness of this approach is easily observed and it appears to work far more often than other traditional methods. Tempus is still a relatively young company, but it appears to have reached incredible heights in the relatively short amount of time it’s existed.
What Goes On From Here
Lefkofsky has already shown he understands how to create successful companies better than anybody else. With the work he’s doing here, it’s clear he understands how to fight disease better than anybody else. We need to change the way we think of cancer and this is the guy who is best prepared for that.
