Oliver MilmanToday on StartupSmart, we mark International Women’s Day by picking out 10 female entrepreneurs who are taking on traditionally male-dominated industries.

Areas such as tech, finance and construction have been considered no-go zones for female-led start-ups, but a new generation of women are emerging to break down out-dated perceptions.

Today, we highlight 10 of the vanguard of female entrepreneurs who are succeeding in seemingly unlikely sectors.

Elsewhere, mentor Colin Benjamin has some tips on how to pick a co-founder and we look at how Bislr, a new business run by three occasionally warring brothers, is looking to take the US by storm.
