Tempus, a company co-founded by Eric Lefkofsky, was granted a recent round of finances recently. In March of this year, Tempus gained $80 million more in funding. They received $70 million just six months before this last round of funding.
What is Tempus
Tempus is a company established in 2015 and is located in Chicago. It is a data-driven company used to fight against cancer. Tempus began upon the frustration of many in the healthcare system discarding tons of valuable data which could’ve helped against the detrimental effects of cancer. Even the co-founder, Lefkoksky, heartbrokenly experienced the traumatizing effects as one of his loved ones suffered from cancer.
With Lefkoksky’s passion and drive, he and his co-founder worked very hard to fight the good fight. They are making amazing strides towards the fight against cancer as they already have gained around $210 million in funding in just a little over two years of their existence. With their funding, they have hired tons of employees, amounting around 30 additional personnel each month. They currently have 400 employees, and they are planning on continuing to hire more employees especially in the tech and data science fields.
Tempus has also partnered with about half of the US healthcare centers. Additionally, they are teaming up with many independent oncologists and a non-profit health information platform called CancerLinQ which is an American Society of Clinical Oncology’s subsidiary.
