Not many billionaires have a story as touching as Eric Lefkofsky’s. He began from very humble beginnings as a carpet vendor in the university back in the early nineties and managed to rise to a respectable entrepreneur with a net worth of almost 2 billion dollars in just three short decades. It was clear that he was always a brilliant mind which was never scared of following his passion and believing whatever he was doing.
Over the years, he managed to come up with ideas and tried them before putting his money behind it. And the latter is what made sure that most of his ventures always blossomed, giving him a much better chance at thriving in business since the financial institutions still had his back and trusted him with virtually everything they did which was an added advantage.
So, what are the ventures that billionaire Eric Lefkofsky started and managed to make them succeed? As earlier stated, there are more than we can fit in this short piece. He co-founded InnerWorking in the fall of 2001. He then left a very favorable InnerWorkings venture in October of 2012 with a new idea in mind.
In 2015, Erick Lefkofsky in collaboration with Keywell started the echo global logistics. This company had one goal which was to deal with freight logistics on behalf of their clients, and it was so lucky that it got a financial boost from one of the most prominent, most notable technology investors in the United States, The New Enterprise Associates.
He went ahead and started quite a handful of ventures and among them was none other than Tempus. Tempus is a clinical business that Eric began to make sure that patients are getting the best care. The company has some of the best equipment and needless to say; they do all in their power to get things done the right way.
Under his stewardship, he has managed to pick on some of the very best doctors and nurses to work for Tempus. In addition to that, he has also ensured that the medical facility has got state of the art medical equipment.
