Since taking the helm of Chegg in 2010, Rosensweig has re-envisioned the company, transforming what was a textbook rental service into a digital hub that offers college students everything from textbooks and homework help, to eTextbook readers and room décor at a discount. Under Rosensweig’s leadership, Chegg’s acquisitions include Zinch, Cramster, Notehall and Student of Fortune. Today, the company enables students to share notes with classmates, download study guides from professors, and contribute to Q and A forums offering homework help.
