Rosen, CEO of Wolfire Games, is recognized for helping to pioneer the "early access" game development model and creating the "pay what you want" digital store Humble Bundle. He graduated from Swarthmore in 2008 with a major in computer science and minor in psychology.

Already, he’s been published in Health Affairs, JAMA Internal Medicine, and the New England Journal of Medicine. Schwartz graduated from Swarthmore in 2009 with majors in economics and biology.
