Chegg, an online textbook rental company, was inspired by Osman Rashid and Aayush Phumbhra's frustration with the policies and procedures of their own university's bookstore. Osman and Aayush knew there had to be a better solution, one that worked for students, professors and publishers alike.

Chegg was launched at Iowa State University in 2005 as a hyper-local classifieds directory. In fall 2007, Chegg introduced their revolutionary textbook rental service. Chegg now offers its services to more than 6,400 universities and community colleges across the country.
