Immigrant Edge: 9 Wildly Successful Entrepreneurs

9 of 10

Osman Rashid
CEO of digital textbook company Kno Inc., and formerly the co-founder and CEO of online textbook rental company Chegg Inc.
Country of origin: Pakistan

Frankly, I was broke in college. As a foreign student, it was difficult to pay for tuition and textbooks. My family was supporting me from Pakistan and I didn’t want to put an additional burden on them. So starting Chegg, an online textbook rental service, was directly related to my experience as an immigrant.
