Chegg product manager Brent Tworetzky is leaving the textbook rental company to become entrepreneur-in-residence at Shasta Ventures. Chegg was a previous investor in Shasta.
Three years ago I joined Chegg to help transform education with a world-class team. Chegg has been a remarkable place and is actually transforming education cost, access, and impact; I’m grateful to have been part of this mission. With that said, I’ve decided that it’s time to for me to leave Chegg to explore building and leading a new venture. I’m excited to announce that I’ll be joining Shasta Ventures as an Entrepreneur-in-Residence.
Chegg has done a great deal to disrupt the student experience over the past few years, and I’m particularly proud of two efforts that I had the opportunity to lead. First, building our deeply technical and user-centric eTextbook service, from team to product to business. Second, running our core textbooks business, improving both customer satisfaction and business success. I’m proud to have played a role in Chegg’s ambitious vision.
I’m especially thankful to Chegg’s CEO Dan Rosensweig. Dan is a talented, inspirational CEO, and is a major reason why I joined Chegg. Dan supported me as product, eTextbook, and business leader, while mentoring me to grow into a better technology executive. So much of Chegg’s success is and will continue to be because of Dan’s leadership.
I’ll be joining Shasta Ventures as an Entrepreneur-in-Residence to spend the coming months thinking about, discussing, and ultimately joining or building a new venture. As a previous investor at Shasta Ventures, I’m excited to return to this great team while I investigate my next step, considering spaces such as ecommerce, education, healthcare, and financial services.
Thanks again to a wonderful team and experience at Chegg. I’m looking forward to new adventures over the coming months and years!
