While advancing in the career path brings with it better titles and money, it relatively brings a heap of responsibilities that call for more dedication to the task and fewer moments of pleasure. Eric Lefcofsky, the co-founder of Tempus and the Chief Executive Officer of Groupon is one such professional who makes a considerable cut on pleasures to create more time for clients and employees. Before becoming the Chief Executive Officer  of Groupon, he would see himself completely turn off his work mode once in the house, making sure he has a relaxed weekend free from any job-related interference. At the moment, however, manning over 11,000 employees in 48 countries, Lefcofsky finds it necessary to work 12 hours on weekdays.

Contrary to the great fun that he used to find in running a chain of ventures, Lescofsky now feels even much better running single organization, which gives him a chance to focus on a single direction, thereby giving his best shot. Even though he admits to having been fascinated by money at a tender age, Lescofsky now attests that it is better to focus on service delivery since that is what ultimately matters. When cash inflow becomes great, spending it becomes the focus and to some extent, one develops the desire to share it out with those who need it.

Lescofsky rises quickly to defend the growth of Groupon. Despite the company having existed barely for four years, he says that the media and the general public are so quick to excite its highs and lows such that anyone would think it’s a company that has existed for over 100 years. He, however, maintains his focus on taking the company a notch higher, citing that all other existing big companies also took the same path in their growth.

On the grounds of misrepresentation, Lescofsky faults the media for the continued unearthing of the issues that happened way back in the 1990’s. He says most of this information regularly brought to the public domain is in most cases quoted out of context and in most instances, has no facts. He as well recalls a few moments in the past when he didn’t have as much money and would rough up some of his allies. At the moment, however, he admits that this is a thing of the past.

Having been at Princeton University, Peter Briger understood the need for the university to have an Entrepreneurship support fund. This is why he would become one of those who funded it on its first round despite not having much to go on at the time. Princeton always held the belief that entrepreneurship is the way to go and it would not only be good for the university, but for the country as well given its ability to create employment as well as meet human needs that are currently not being met by what is available in the market. Peter Briger believed in this vision, and he has been one of the most vocal supporters of the Princeton Alumni Entrepreneurs fund. He has dedicated both his time and resources in the hope that this dream would one day come to flourish. Today the fund has been able to achieve quite the amount of success, having supported various startups created by either Princeton students or alumni. The fund requires that all projects aspiring to be funded get submitted to an independent panel of judges who then assess their viability after which they recommended the amount of funding to be granted. This usually goes up to one hundred thousand dollars as well as mentorship from a leading entrepreneur within that field. This belief by Peter Briger comes from working with various entrepreneurs over the years, both in Goldman and the Fortress Investment Group. These are individuals that these corporations have invested in either directly or indirectly and over the years he has been able to monitor their progress and saw the results first hand. At Fortress Peter Briger has been able to lead his credit division over the years doing deals worth more than 100 billion dollars, some of which were made to startups. The ability to make such complex business analysis has earned him a spot on the Forbes list of top 400 most influential business professionals. This continues to date even as he led the Fortress Investment Group as Co-CEO even after its acquisition by Softbank for 3.3 billion dollars earlier this year.
