Steve Fredette was a chemistry major at MIT. He didn’t envision a career in tech. Today, he’s leading a cloud-based restaurant management software company that announced a $101 million round of funding in July 2017. Fredette is the president and co-founder of Toast Inc., which he’s helped grow to more than 500 employees since 2012.
