FORTUNE — Before Kristi Ross moved to Chicago — where she has worked for more than 20 years in finance — she trained to become a certified public accountant St. Norbert College, a small liberal arts school in Wisconsin. An accounting degree is somewhat atypical for entrepreneurs, but for Ross it added up, propelling her to become chief financial officer of a Chicago trading company when she was just 25 years old. She has since started several companies, including a financial network called Tastytrade (where she is president) and her most recent project, Dough (where she is CEO).
