Eric Lefkofsky and Tempus Labs – In the Forefront of Revolutionizing Cancer Care

Eric Lefkofsky is an entrepreneur, and one of his successful ventures is Tempus Labs. Tempus Labs has developed a molecular and clinical library of digitized genomic and patient information designed to provide physicians with a searchable database of DNA and clinical data so they can individualize care for cancer patients. The data is available to physicians in real time so they can make data-driven decisions to benefit each patient.

Tempus Labs is a privately held company with more than 11,000 employees in 48 countries. The company is still growing thanks to an infusion of cash from investors. According to a recent Chicago Tribune article, Tempus Labs recently received more than $80 million in additional funding. New investors like Kinship Trust Co. and T. Rowe Price Associates have joined long-time supporters like New Enterprise Associates and Revolution Growth. This infusion of cash not only increased total investments in Tempus Labs to more than $210 million but it simultaneously boosted the valuation of Tempus Labs to more than $1 billion.

Startups with a valuation of more than $1 billion are rare, so rare in fact, it led Aileen Lee a venture capitalist, to dub such startups as “a unicorn.” More than 50 percent of startups fail within the first four years, so the success of Eric Lefkofsky and Tempus Labs make them unique. As a biotech firm, Tempus Labs has successfully merged healthcare and technology. In an article written by Lefkofsky, he stated, “Healthcare, as an industry, is ripe for technological disruption. The potential for positive impact, particularly in the area of cancer care is both enormous and imminent.”

Tempus Labs and Eric Lefkofsky are in the forefront of healthcare research by leading a group of scientists, researchers, and physicians to develop cutting-edge tools to individualize health care. The mission of Tempus Labs is “to enhance the quality of human lives.” The continued success of Eric Lefkofsky and Tempus Labs indicate they are living up to their mission. Through genomic sequencing and mapping, Tempus Labs is in the forefront of revolutionizing cancer care.

Dr. Mark McKenna: The Dedicated Doctor

In a recent article with Ideamensch.com, Dr. Mark McKenna discussed some of the experiences that he has had in his life, as well as the launch of his medical aesthetic company OVME. Dr. McKenna explains that the idea for OVME came from working within the medial aesthetics community and seeing a genuine need for change. Through smart goal setting and visualization, Dr. McKenna was able to launch a company that is redefining elective healthcare options. Having never worked for anyone else but himself, he is able to bring fresh ideas into his work to create a company that is completely new. While Dr. McKenna likes to work hard, he does express the importance of slowing down sometimes. Meaningful meditation in conjunction with his passionate drive has resulted in his recipe for success.

Dr. Mark McKenna is a graduate of Tulane University Medical School. He holds a medical license in both Surgery and General Medicine. His first successful business venture was when he launched his real estate firm, McKenna Venture Investments. Gaining his first experiences with investing and business management, Dr Mckenna flourished. This lead to his eventual acquisition of Universal Mortgage Lending and Uptown Title, Inc. Sadly, the wrath of Hurricane Katrina devastated his business prospects. This did not stop Dr. McKenna from moving forward with his business plans, eventually founding, building, and selling McKenna’s company ShapeMed. For Dr. Mark McKenna, it was always about looking toward the future and that future was going to be OVME.

A dedicated father, Dr. Mark McKenna starts every day with his daughter Milana Elle. A wonderful morning with family is a good way of starting out a long, productive day. Dr. McKenna is committed to OVME as well, arriving early in the morning and ultimately working on his projects until he falls asleep at night. While he does make time for his daughter and his wife Gianine daily, Dr. McKenna will also work tirelessly to grow OVME as successfully as he has grown his previous businesses. It is exciting to see where Dr. McKenna will go from here, no doubt OVME will go far.
