(NASDAQ:SIDU), a Space-as-a-Service satellite company focused on mission critical hardware manufacturing; multi-disciplinary engineering services; satellite design, production, launch planning, mission operations; and in-orbit support, is proud to announce that Sidus Space and Founder and CEO Carol Craig have been honored as gold award winners in the 19th annual Stevie® Awards for Women in Business.
The Stevie Awards for Women in Business honor women executives, entrepreneurs, employees, and the companies they run—worldwide. The Stevie Awards have been hailed as the world’s premier business awards. More than 1,500 entries were submitted this year for consideration in more than 100 categories, including Executive of the Year, Entrepreneur of the Year, Company of the Year, Startup of the Year, Women Helping Women, and Women Run Workplace of the Year. Sidus Space and Craig have been honored as gold award winners in the Achievement in Product Innovation and Most Innovative Woman of the Year (Technology) categories, respectively.
“It’s an honor to be recognized among so many remarkable women and great minds,” said Carol Craig, Founder and CEO of Sidus Space. “I feel strongly that with the right support, the right team, and the right decisions, the juggle of being a woman in this world trying to ‘do it all’ is possible. I am proud of the relentless effort and innovative nature of my team and look forward to all that we aim to accomplish together in the months and years ahead.”
Craig is a service-disabled Navy veteran, wife and mother, and a self-described ‘astropreneur’ who has become a “first” among women time and again, including being among the first women eligible to fly combat aircraft in the US Navy and becoming the first female-owned space-based company to be publicly traded. Craig’s determination has carried her throughout her life and career, inspiring young minds along the way.
Craig and her team are working to broaden the horizons of people across the globe, aiming to launch a constellation of LizzieSat satellites into orbit over the next five years. LizzieSat is “Bringing Space Down to Earth™” and will bring the benefits of data collected in space to worldwide companies and the government, enabling them to do more efficient work in real time – whether gathering environmental data, tracking military movement, or expanding access to internet resources.
Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Award winners were determined by the average scores of more than 200 business professionals around the world, working on eight juries. The complete list of the 2022 Stevie Awards for Women in Business and the list of winners are available here.
