Margaret Kao is one of only a few female leaders in the high-tech industry. Early in her career, Margaret was working at Taiwan’s Industrial Technology Research Institute when she realized that she likely would be doing the same job forever. She opted to start her own business, believing that being an entrepreneur means never being unemployed.  

Founded in 1988, Marketech International Corp. (MIC) is a professional solutions service provider, supplying high-tech equipment and materials to the semiconductor, flat-panel display and photovoltaic industries. In addition to designing and manufacturing products for a leading semiconductor and LCD equipment company, MIC offers total solutions for cleanrooms; mechanical, electrical and plumbing; chemical; and gas supply systems.
