Eric Lefkofsky’s Success with Tempus

An article, “This Is What’s Missing in the Data-Centric Approach to Cancer,” by Barb Darrow, on Fortune.com discusses the start-up, Tempus. Eric Lefkofsky, a co-founder, believes doctors and research communities need more information collected from past, current, and future cancer patients, in order give the patient better treatment. Mr Lefkofsky has made the connection, through his own wife’s battle with cancer, that clinical information on how a treatment has worked, from one patient to another, is not being shared effectively with researchers, doctors, and other people who may need to know.

Tempus is a company that takes the electronic medical records (EMR) of a patient, creates a clean version, without their personal information, and gives it back to the source. The doctor/hospital is then able to use the information to find patterns and ideas on how their treatments have worked on a variety of different people. Lefkofsky believes that by having patient’s results’ readily available for research, will individualize the possibility for a positive treatment on future patients.

Eric Lefkofsky likes to start new companies and sell them for profit. He has been extremely successful. He is currently co-founder, CEO of Tempus, co-founder, Chairman of Groupon, and co-founder of Uptake Technologies, Mediaocean, Echo, Global Logistics, and Inner Workings. Lefkofsky earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan and his Juris Doctorate degree from the University ofMichigan Law School.

Lefkofsky, and his wife Liz, started the Lefkofsky Family Foundation, to contribute in areas, such as, education, science, and causes around the globe that will make the lives of people in their communities better. Lefkofsky also works with Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, The Museum of Science and Industry and World Business Chicago, and The Art Institute of Chicago. Lefkofsky works as an adjunct professor at the University of Chicago, and he has written a book, “Accelerated Disruption”.

Why Didn’t James Dondero Purchase Greek Sovereign Bonds?

Nowadays, there are many governments which issue sovereign bonds. This allows them to raise money on the international capital markets. Why did James Dondero’s Highland Capital fund choose to invest in Argentina and not Greece?

 

“Greece is Usually Bankrupt”

 

The whole concept of the credit score is to measure “creditworthiness.” Well, how many of these nations are truly creditworthy? Most African nations are not able to issue sovereign debt because they are not deemed to be “creditworthy.”

 

Is Greece creditworthy?

 

Did you know that for 50% of its existence as an independent nation, Greece has been in default, according to Forbes? Of course, that is a horrible record. Forbes described Greece as a “basket case.” Is a basket case creditworthy?

 

What most people don’t know is that many Greek public, income-producing assets have already been encumbered. Many of them are already owned by creditors or have large liens placed against them. That is why some refuse to buy Greek sovereign bonds.

 

“Strong Argentina Infrastructure”

 

How Does Argentina look? Since 1824, Argentina has defaulted 8 times. That also makes it one of the top countries for financial insolvency. Why did Highland Capital’s Jim Dondero purchase Argentina bonds and not Greek bonds?

 

Eventually, an estimated 24% of Highland Funds assets were invested in Argentina. James Dondero and his “alpha analysts” calculated that the “country’s natural resources, developed infrastructure, and educated population would ultimately limit losses.” Unfortunately, Greece does not have as many undeveloped natural resources.

 

Some also believe that Argentina still has the financial ability to repay its debt, while Greece might not. After Mauricio Macri was elected in 2015, Argentina offered to “pay $6.5 billion to settle lawsuits.” Compare this to Greek’s inability to repay its debt and request for more funding by the EU Central Bank.

 

“Math Counts”

 

James Dondero has invested in the Dallas community by purchasing computers for the students to learn their mathematics. The “Reasoning Mind” charity is a nice project “teaching people how to fish.” Hopefully, these future leaders can increase the proficiency of governments in balancing their budgets.

Don Ressler Goes for Convenience

The platform that both JustFab and Fabletics stand on together is one that is easy to understand: convenience. Everything about the brands, from the way that women can find the perfect outfits to the way that they are shipped conveniently to your front door each month, screams convenience and provides people with the chance to be able to do more with their lives while they are doing everything that they can to stay fashionable. Fashion is all about what you can make out of it and Don Ressler knew that when he was designing the idea behind JustFab and Fabletics.

Fabletics, which is an all inclusive athleisurewear brand, has created many different options for women who were stuck with wearing boring, ratty t shirts and shorts that just didn’t fit in the past. With Fabletics at https://eyepain.org/index.php/2016/12/19/don-ressler-is-part-of-the-incredible-success-of-justfab-and-fabletics/, customers can now have a perfect workout outfit that is delivered to them on a monthly basis for a set price. There is no worry to shop around and try to find new clothes and the majority of the time, the outfits are ready to go with no need to try and match shoes or make things look different about the outfit just to get it to fit.

The idea is that women will be more inclined to work out if they feel good about themselves. There have been many studies that were done on the ideas behind working out and feeling good and a lot of the confidence from both of these avenues actually comes from having the right outfit on perezhilton.com. When a woman can feel like she is dressed the right way and is also able to do new things with the new outfits that she has, she will be more confident in herself This will lead to better performance and being able to have a better chance at working out.

Don Ressler knew all of this when he came up with the idea for Fabletics. Don Ressler wanted to see the women who were working out in these types of clothes be able to perform and do more with the work outs that they were doing while they were in the clothes. Don Ressler also wanted to create something that was convenient. Fabletics allows women to not even have to think about what they are going to wear to work out in. Since it’s delivered to them regularly, they will be able to have a fun new athletic outfit every month.
