1976 - 1986: Commercialize microprocessor technology

 

In its first ten-year stage of development, Acer established a corporate culture based on the founders' firm belief in "the goodness of human nature." This belief was exemplified by the offering of stock to all employees. During this stage in Acer's history, the company significantly contributed to the popularization of computers in Taiwan.
