LOOK: Carol Craig, Founder and CEO of Craig Technologies, chats with Steve Wilson in the latest edition of âSit Down with Steveâ. Craig talks about his business, his time in the US Navy and more in this exclusive interview.
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Carol Craig is like many of us who live on the Space Coast. The US Navy veteran enjoys spending time with her family, she enjoys the outdoors, she enjoys sports, and she loves music, especially Kenny Chesney and Jimmy Buffett.
What sets her apart the most, however, is that she is the founder and CEO of one of the country’s fastest growing companies, Craig Technologies.
Founded in 1999, Craig Technologies has employed thousands of people over the years and is described by Carol Craig as “an engineering technology company focused on government and commercial contracts”. She went on to say that we are essentially a âgovernment service contractorâ.
Sidus Space, a spin-off of Craig Technologies, has been around for about 10 years. Formerly known as Craig Technologies Aerospace Solutions, the name was recently changed to Sidus Space.
According to the sidusspace.com website, âSidus Space makes it easy for any business, industry or vertical to begin their journey off the planet with our rapidly scalable and low cost satellite services, space solutions and testing alternatives. More than just a âsatellite as a serviceâ provider, we become your trusted mission partner, from concept to low Earth orbit and beyond. “
Creating some buzz in the industry, Sidus Space recently became a public company, listed on NASDAQ. One of the most interesting aspects of this is that with over 3,000 companies listed on the NASDAQ and the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), only 32 are founded or co-founded by women.
To go further, on the NSADAQ, only 22 are uniquely founded and operated by women. And, one more step further, Sidus Space is believed to be the first and only space company founded by women to go public.
It is truly an exciting time in the space industry. Craig Technologies and Sidus Space are leaders. They are ready to lead the new year and beyond. For Craig Technologies and Sidus Space, âthe sky is the limit! “
