Dorcas Teo, CEO of Nordic Flow Control aspired to become a businesswoman from a young age, yet after graduating from a local polytechnic, she took the “regular” work route. She first tried to satisfy her calling to the sea by enrolling in the Navy but was rejected. She then worked in an American multinational company for a decade focusing on valve remote control systems, becoming one of their top sales people.
In 2003, she finally fulfilled her entrepreneurial desires at Nordic Flow Control – a global systems integration solutions provider for marine, offshore, oil and gas industries. She shares her backstory, insights and experiences in running a company in a challenging and competitive industry.
