Sitting on top of a giant fortune that he has amassed over the course of his career, Lefkofsky is listed on the Forbes prestigious billionaires list. He has started or been a part of a long list of successful companies such as Mediaocean, InnerWorkings, Lightbank, and more.

Due to personal reasons dear to his heart and his overall philanthropic spirit, Eric Lefkofsky decided to leave the pure business realm and enter into life-saving biotechnology. He recently created a new biotechnology company called Tempus. Tempus is currently spearheading ways to vastly improve cancer diagnosis. Through innovative ideas and strategies, Eric has already lead Tempus to the forefront of early cancer detection.

Experts within the biotechnology industry and referring to Tempus as an end-to-end service that helps hospitals and health institutes work together to maximize common goals more efficiently. Tempus is currently building a groundbreaking data set that once fully realized will provide a huge step forward in the fight against cancer. The data set seeks to harness a massive amount of patient-driven data and run it through an algorithm that is able to read gene sequences. The algorithm reads data from thousands of patients and analyzes their genes, thus formulating much better detection protocols against the particular genetic profiles that are at a much higher risk for certain types of cancers.

Where Tempus will generate revenue is by offering select patients their gene-sequencings analysis. In partnership with the cooperation known as Northwestern clinic, Tempus will provide their software in exchange for as much patient data as Northwestern is able to provide. With this data, Tempus will continue to grow their already massive data set to further increase the accuracy of their cancer screening system. The more data Tempus has the more accurate their software will become at early cancer detection.

Many biotechnology experts have noticed that the activities of Tempus and Lefkofsky’s role within the company have largely remained a secret. Is thought that due to the philanthropic aspect of the company that Eric likely wants to pull as much attention away from himself and instead cast the brightest light he can on the battle against cancer itself.

Super successful entrepreneur and international businessman Vijay Eswaran has been studying the habits of millennials. He finds a number of disturbing trends that he says both business owners and millennials themselves must get a handle on to avoid significant problems in the future.

This topic is the thrust of Vijay Eswaran’s book, “Sphere of Silence.” It speaks directly to millions of young people who are working in what is known today as the “gig economy.” The latter refers to nontraditional jobs often interfaced via the internet and worked by freelancers. Another example of a gig economy job is using one’s own car as a taxi service for Uber. Renting a space in your home with Airbnb is yet another example of a gig economy source of income.

Vijay Eswaran said millennials are highly attracted to the gig economy because their values are different from that of their parent’s generation. Twenty-something people are less concerned about buying things like homes and cars. They prefer lifestyles that are not weighed down by mortgages and car payments.

Millennials also value their freedom and the ability to set their own hours and work schedules. Millennials realize that working gig economy jobs means making less money, but they are willing to make that trade-off in exchange for retaining what they view as a greater sense of independence.

But Vijay Eswaran said too many millennials are developing bad habits, much of them enabled by their addiction to technology. He notes that the first thing the average millennial does in the morning is scan their smartphone and the last thing they do at night is scan their smartphone – and that’s while they scan their smartphones throughout the day, as well.

Eswaran said millennials are spending hours of unproductive time wading through unimportant information that is constantly enticing them on social media. He said heavy online time activity is causing millennials to lose sleep, waste time, erode their productivity and keep them off balance. It’s also producing higher rates of depression and alienation.

At the same time, millennials are reporting high rates of stress in large numbers. Their low-paying gig economy jobs require them to work longer hours and for completing tasks that tend to not be unrewarding and not very meaningful.

In his book, Sphere of Silence, Vijay Eswaran offers advice and solutions for young adults who find themselves caught in the negative flow of an increasingly all-pervasive, online-connected virtual world. His main piece of advice is simple but powerful. Mr. Eswaran recommends that millennials take one hour a day to disconnect from all devices and simply sit in a space of peaceful silence. It’s not formal medication, such as TM or Zen, or any sort of religious practice.

Mr. Eswaran recommends an hour of peaceful time might also be used for setting goals, jotting down creative ideas, reading, writing and connecting with one’s own sense of a personal Higher Power. The point is to stop and reflect and break the pervasive hold smartphones and online activity has on millions of young people.

Felipe Montoro Jens is a Brazilian businessman who has worked in the financial sector for the past 25 years. He is one of the country’s premier experts on PPPs (Private Public Partnerships), having seen multiple types of these agreements through to completion. He attended Fundacao Getulio Vargas where he studied finance. He earned a graduate degree in 2000 from the Thunderbird School of Global Management.

Brazil is rapidly developing. However, this often comes at the expense of the Amazon rain forest. Brazil is losing parts of the Amazon in the name of progress. However, Felipe Montoro Jens says it doesn’t need to be this way. He is working with government officials and industry leaders to figure out ways to ensure a sustainable future. He is calling for eco-friendly infrastructure that will fit Brazilians’ needs while protecting nature. Find out more at consultasocio.com to learn more.

He first started working with PPPs when he was the director of Santo Antonio Energia. He has also been on the board of multiple Brazilian firms. An infrastructure expert, he says that a coordinated strategy is needed to protect the Amazon. His experience includes building financial strategies for public and private companies, including eliminating waste, making him ideally suited for this task.

One industry Felipe Montoro Jens is tackling is tourism. With thousands of miles of beautiful beaches, the Amazon jungle, Rio de Janeiro, and the Andes Mountains, tourists come from around the world to Brazil. However, over-tourism is a growing problem. Small Brazilian villages and fragile ecosystems can’t handle the influx of people.

A region that has been especially impacted is Santa Catarina. It has been named by travel magazines as one of the best places to visit in the world. It has a very popular theme park, award-winning hotels, and way too many people. Felipe Montoro Jens is building strategies to support tourism while reducing its negative consequences.
