Tempus has now raised $130 million in funding which gives it a whopping $700 million valuation, making it a real name to take note of in the healthcare industry.
In addition to the raising of funds Tempus also has announced some very high level partnerships with top medical facilities that are giving the startup even more klout in the healthcare world. Tempus has established concrete partnerships with The Cleveland Clinic, The Mayo Clinic and Duke University’s School of Medicine. These partnerships will be critical to establish the real world application of Tempus’s overarching goal of creating the largest library of molecular and clinical data that the world has ever seen.
