Course Hero was founded in 2006 by Andrew Grauer, Gregor Carrigan, and Jared Grauer. The company has not publicly endorsed a plan to participate in an IPO. These comments should not be interpreted to mean that the company is formally pursuing or foregoing an IPO.

Course Hero is an online learning platform that allows students to share and purchase study materials and other educational resources. The company has acquired five other edtech companies: Symbolab, LitCharts, CliffsNotes, QuillBot, and Scribblr. CEO Grauer says that more acquisitions may be on the way. The business, which reports having been profitable for more than five years, has raised $477 million in venture capital funding from investors including Wellington Management, Sequoia Capital Global Equities, OMERS Growth Equity, D1 Capital, GSV Ventures, NewView Capital, SuRo Capital, TPG, and Valiant Peregrine Fund. A $380 million Series C round increased the company's valuation to $3.6 billion.
