CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sidus Space, Inc. (NASDAQ: SIDU), a Space-as-a-Service satellite company focused on commercial satellite design, manufacture, launch, and data collection is pleased to announce that Carol Craig, CEO and Founder of Sidus Space, is the recipient of the i4 Business 2022 Women’s Inspired Leadership Awards in the “Spirit of Progress” category.
Ms. Craig established herself as a leader in the community and industry, initially as the founder and CEO of Craig Technologies, a nationally recognized aerospace and defense contracting firm. Combined, Ms. Craig’s two companies have created thousands of jobs since inception, supporting government and commercial customers and promoting advancements in space. In December 2021, Ms. Craig made history as the first female founder of a space company to go public when Sidus Space was listed on NASDAQ. An engineer by trade, Ms. Craig is a former naval flight officer and was one of the first women eligible to fly combat aircraft in the Navy.
“Sometimes you just have to jump and build your wings on the way down”, Craig said reflecting on the expansion with Sidus Space. This award symbolizes just that – taking a giant leap to progress within the commercial space industry. Just as important, this award is an example of recognition of women who have made an impact on their fields, their communities, and our world.”
She added, “Too often women are apologizing for the very qualities that make them successful.”
Along with Ms. Craig, eight other Central Florida community leaders have been named recipients of the 2022 Women’s Inspired Leadership Awards presented by i4 Business magazine.
The event will take place today, May 10, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Caribe Royale Resort located at 8101 World Center Drive near Walt Disney World.
