Eric Lefkofsky

Personal Challenges as Opportunities for Innovative Breakthroughs

12/3/18 - When his wife was diagnosed with breast cancer, Eric Lefkofsky was frustrated by his limited access to information and data, which led him to found Tempus—the world’s largest library of clinical and molecular data and an operating system to make that data accessible and useful. As a serial entrepreneur, Eric has played a key role in founding and co-founding startups that develop disruptive technology to improve society.

A firm believer in balance, Eric doesn’t work on the weekends or beyond 6:00 pm on weekdays and credits this philosophy to his innovative breakthroughs. Kellogg was pleased to welcome him to speak at the Brave Leader series.
