Eric Lefkofsky is best known for being a startup revolutionizer after the entrepreneur founded Groupon, the fastest startup company, to date. In 2015, he founded Tempus, which is a healthcare data company. The company has an ambitious business model and its growing relatively fast. Tempus is a leading provider of technology-based medicine solutions.
In previous years, Eric Lefkofsky invested in business services companies, media companies, and consumer-direct companies, but he found that the same type of technology in structuring those companies was missing in the healthcare industry. The intent is to fix the underlying data infrastructure, which initially became a challenge to retrieve clean structured clinical data. Tempus takes the clinical data along with molecular data and sequences it to great depth to provide a streamlined analysis of the patients receiving care, which typically is 500 to 1,000, depending on the panel that is being used for the data.
Over the last 12 months, the cost involved has been reduced from millions of dollars to thousands of dollars, due to advanced technologies, such as cloud-computing and storing technology. Tempus has created a way to the structure the clinical data and combine it with molecular data and then use artificial intelligence to analyze the existing patterns of patient care and medications, which results in being able to provide real-time information to physicians and with an overall substantial cost-savings.
Since 2006, Eric Lefkofsky has been very involved in the Lefkofsky Family Foundation, which he founded as a private charitable foundation. He currently serves as a Trustee of Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, the Art Institute of Chicago, and he also serves as the Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theatre Company. He is a University of Michigan graduate and earned his Juris Doctor degree from the University of Michigan Law School.

The company has excelled in its efforts to identify new opportunities around the place it operates in.
The Sao Paulo-based company has grown tremendously under the leadership of Jose Auriemo Neto to expand to Salvador, Manus as well as overseas in Punta Del Este (Uruguay), New York and Miami.

Mr. Neto had a breakthrough idea in 2006 in the fashion industry. When he told his father about the idea, he was skeptical about it at first. He planned to construct a complex of high luxury on a 80,000 square meters land at Margianal Pinheiros. The idea materialized in 2006 when they started Parque Cidade Jardim. The high-end complex is made up of residential towers, offices, shopping mall, apartments and left enough room for expansion for Fasano hotel brand.

Often those who do the most tend not to get the attention they deserve. In the wake of the devastating left behind by Hurricane Harvey in the coast of Texas, only one company was on the ground bringing in basic necessities to the people of Houston. Only one company would set aside its very own department solely to create a charitable foundation. Steam Energy, an energy provider that offers fixed-rates and mobile plans to its customers has been noted to be one of the most involved companies in Texas. Through “Stream Cares” the charitable foundation of Stream Energy, associates of the company were able to bring aid to those hit hardest by the storm.
Although companies are by no means not donating money, in fact in 2016 corporations across America gave over 19 Billion dollars to communities, however, charity is about more than just signing a check and Stream Energy is setting the bar pretty high for other companies. In fact, most of their associates help on a volunteer basis only, any funds raised go directly to the people in need. Stream Energy and its associates also form partnerships with other organizations in Texas such as the Red Crossand Dallas based Hope Supply Co which according to Stream Energy associates is a passion project that brings warm meals, money, and mentors to homeless children across Dallas.
Stream Energy due to their involvement in the community has raised the attention of other companies to follow suit. Although giving back to the community is the right thing to do regardless of the RIO, companies are seeing this as an opportunity to earn the trust and loyalty of their consumers. Obtaining this would form a sort of insurance coverage in the event that a company goes through hard financial times or scandals arise internally. Whatever a companies intentions might be, the reality is that these sort of actions can only be a win-win for both corporations and consumers.
