Eric Lefkofsky is one of the most lucrative entrepreneurs and tech founders in Chicago. He is the co-founder of many successful ventures such as Lightbank, Uptake, EchoLogistics, Mediaocean, and InnerWorkings. He is also the co-founder and Chairman of Groupon.

In 2006, he and wife Liz created the Lefkofsky Family Foundation. This private charity exists to serve communities by funding highly effective initiatives. Lefkofsky is also a trustee on the board of Lurie Children’ hospital, The Museum of Science and Industry and World Business Chicago, and the Art Institute of Chicago. Additionally, he works as an adjunct professor at the University of Chicago.

After so many successes, Lefkofsky thought he was done with startup companies, but his mind was changed when his wife was diagnosed with breast cancer. He noticed that data regarding cancer and the best courses of treatment were not very accessible to doctors. He was frustrated by the lack of information available to readily help doctors make decisions regarding treatment.

Looking for a way to solve this problem, he and his business partner Brad Keywell co-founded Tempus. Tempus’ approach to cancer treatment uses genome sequencing and machine learning to gather necessary information from the patient’s tumor, and then it creates an appropriate treatment plan to fight it and learn more about Eric.

The program is data-driven that basically takes molecular and clinical information from the patient and stores the data in a library. Partnerships between Tempus and these health care institutions have already been established: University of Michigan, University of Chicago, Mayo Clinic, and Northwestern University. Doctors from these cancer programs have already loaded patients’ information into the Tempus program. Physicians then can access this database to find patients with similar profiles as their patients and find the treatments that have been most effective. Although there are several physicians on the executive team of Tempus, it is a tech company.

Lefkofsky feels this is the most ambitious startup of his career. The whole idea of data-driven diagnoses and treatment planning is a paradigm shift when it comes to diagnosis and treatment of cancer and Eric’s lacrosse camp.

Avi Weisfogel owns the Dental Sleep Masters, a company based in New Jersey. His background is comprehensive when it comes to the research and medication of sleep apnea. Recently Dr. Avi launched a program for helping primary and secondary care doctors whereby they can work hand in hand and get treatments for those who suffer from sleep apnea. Avi Weisfogel has been one of the leaders in the development of diagnosing for this condition and helping those suffering from this disorder. Nearly 90% of the people who suffer remain undiagnosed but Dr. Avi and his team have been working around the clock to disclose the inner secrets on how sleep apnea can be treated.

Avi founded the Owner Unlimited Sleep Patient in 2012 where he began teaching dentists how they can serve more sleep patients. He then established Dental Sleep Masters in 2014 so that he can help dentists to break further into the sleep world by using oral appliances to offer treatment for sleep disorders.

Weisfogel is also a family man. Being a father of six, Avi is specifically interested in assisting children around the globe who deal with various health and dental issues. He believes that all kids, no matter their background, should have access to health and dental care. This is the reason he also works to support the Operation Smile.

Operation Smile is an organization that was set up in the 1980s. In the beginning, the aim was to assist kids in the Philippines. But, as the years went by, this foundation has grown and can now help children from more than 80 countries. The charity organization works mainly with young adults and kids who have issues with cleft palates and cleft lips including other facial deformities. More than 200,000 surgical procedures have been done by this organization in over 100 countries. Since Avi feels that the organization needs more funds to help more people, he has launched a campaign dubbed Go Fund Me. He hopes to get $2,000 or more for Operation Smile.
