The Progressive Vision of Eric Lefkofsky

The world is a constantly changing place in every facet of its design. From the biospheres of the rainforest to the technological advances of humankind, the world continues its rapid changes without any halt. The mind of humankind needs to be the same way. To continue healthy progression, the human mind and spirit need to continue on a progressive path parallel to that of technology and the life around it. There are many men and women who are leading the charge in terms of progressive change. Whether they influence local markets or affect the world on a larger scale, every bit of forwarding action benefits us all.

One such progressive is Eric Lefkofsky. Eric Lefkofsky is an entrepreneur best known as the CEO of the multi-million dollar e-commerce platform, Groupon. Groupon is a worldwide marketplace that offers a revolutionary way for small businesses to connect with their local customer base. Groupon provides its users with discounts and deals exclusive its platform which they can then use at local businesses. This allows local businesses to gain exposure to a new customer base and for customers to experience new services they may or may not have been aware of. As the CEO and co-founder of Groupon, Eric Lefkofsky helped produce a unique tool for small businesses to succeed. This is the type of progressive action that helps benefit the world. Groupon at one point was just an idea until Lefkofsky helped it grow by providing 1 million dollars in seed funding. Afterward Groupon grew to have a company worth of over 1 billion dollars in the stock market.

Eric Lefkofsky is also responsible for heading Tempus, a revolutionary data archival system which logs human genomic data. Genomic data is information taken from the human genome. Human genomes are large groupings of Deoxyribonucleic acid or DNA. This genomic information is then reviewed along with clinical data to help provide physicians with a better understanding of their patient’s genetic history. Armed with this information, physicians are able to more accurately provide care for their patient’s needs. Because the technology is still in its younger stages, no one knows the limit of the technology Tempus is providing. It is difficult, complex and likely harrowing work, but the Tempus team led by Lefkofsky is providing a progressive change to the medical industry that will help patients for generations to come.
