It’s no secret that men dominated the tech world at one point in time.

But it’s no longer just a man’s world. The times have changed and women are killing it on the technical turf, especially here on Canadian soil.

These are the women who have broken down industry barriers, climbed the ranks, and are now running their own innovative businesses.

Here are 10 tech ladies taking the digital world by storm…

Lily Tse 

Due to a family history of cancer, Lily was inspired to find a way to learn about the impact cosmetics can have on our health. What she discovered is that some cosmetics are filled with toxins that would never be permitted in the food and drinks sector, and so she developed a simpler way to access and assess information about products’ ingredients and their possible health implications. She launched Think Dirty, a mobile app that connects ingredient-conscious beauty shoppers to natural beauty brands.
