In 1988, Fran Craig founded Computer Strategies out of her basement in Northern Virginia. Initially positioned as a professional IT services firm, she morphed Computer Strategies into a software product company providing cloud ERP for professional services and project based firms. Under Fran’s leadership, the Company, eventually rebranded as “Unanet”, has grown at an average of 20% per year over the last 10 years.

Today, Unanet has over 1,000 customers across the world and employs over 150 individuals in the Washington DC area. A rarity in today’s market, Unanet is debt free, profitable, and entirely owned by Fran and her employees. She frequently speaks on entrepreneurship, women in business, and project management. After graduating from St. Mary’s College at Notre Dame and working as a computer programmer at AT&T, Fran spent time at Carnegie Mellon expanding opportunities for women in technology.



  1. Frances has created a company where people come together to do great things and enjoy themselves in the process. Her constant promotion of positive speak and leadership by example has resulted in a workplace that all can enjoy. Over the last few years, we have had many employees join our team that previously had worked with us as customer/clients. These individuals all state clearly that their interactions with our team led them to pursue a career with Unanet. The positive interactions that our customers experience is a direct result from Fran’s leadership qualities that trickle down to all employees.

  2. Fran has always been a leader by example both within and beyond the workplace, striving to always follow her own advice, walk the walk, and talk the talk. She particularly demonstrates leadership by focusing not just on the bottom line and product sales, but on the employees working at Unanet and how each individual can grow their strengths and turn their weaknesses into positive attributes. Utilizing positive speech at all times inside and outside the office, Unanet has created an extremely positive atmosphere that is essential to our company culture and is supported and maintained by all employees.
