Prodea Systems today announced that CEO and Co-Founder Anousheh Ansari has been selected as an honoree for the Dallas Business Journal’s Women in Business Awards, honoring the region’s most influential business women. Now in its seventh year, the award program recognizes outstanding local women business leaders who not only are making a difference in their industries, but also in their communities. Showcasing the diversity of female business leaders in North Texas, this year’s honorees represent industries ranging from oil and energy to legal to aviation and aerospace to healthcare to manufacturing to communications.
“The Dallas Business Journal’s award program enables the sharing of success stories of women in business, further encouraging and inspiring others on their paths to achievement,” said Anousheh Ansari, CEO and Co-Founder of Prodea. “As a proponent of STEM education for society’s youth, it is important that successful women share their experiences to motivate others to follow their dreams. Receiving this recognition is an honor and demonstrates the impact women have made in various industries within the Dallas region.“
On September 18, 2006, Ansari blasted off into space for an eight-day expedition aboard the International Space Station and captured headlines around the world as the first female private space explorer. She also earned a place in history as the first astronaut of Iranian descent, the first Muslim woman, and the fourth private explorer to visit space. As a successful serial entrepreneur and active proponent of world-changing technologies and social entrepreneurship, she along with her family provided the title sponsorship for the Ansari XPRIZE, a $10 million cash award for the first non-governmental organization to launch a reusable manned spacecraft into space twice within two weeks. This feat was accomplished in 2004 by legendary aerospace designer Burt Rutan. With the success of the XPRIZE competition, the Ansari family helped launch a new era in private space exploration. Ansari is also the founder of the “What If Prize Competition,“ designed to spark interest in space science with the goal of encouraging students to use their imagination for innovative ideas. Each year the competition presents unique space-themed challenges and gives students the opportunity to think, search and write their ideas on how to solve these challenges.
As Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Prodea Systems, Ansari leads the company in achieving their business goals and vision of their technology. Prodea is the first company to provide seamless access to the broad range of services comprising the connected home and, ultimately, the emerging Internet of Things. The company’s Residential Operating System (ROS®) is a managed service delivery platform that enables traditional and emerging service providers worldwide to deliver seamless access between people, services, data and devices in a fashion never before available.
The full list of honorees will be featured in this week’s Dallas Business Journal and can be accessed here. The group will also be honored at the Women in Business Awards luncheon and trade show at the Irving Convention Center on August 28, 2014. More information can be found here.
