Jackrabbit software leaps forward for athlete turned entrepreneur
By Sam Boykin CHARLOTTE — Mark Mahoney has parlayed his passion for youth sports into a business called Jackrabbit that caters to both sports facilities and busy parents. With a background in information technology and software development, this was Mahoney’s first venture into business ownership. He said it’s been a daunting process, especially as he’s had to wear so many different hats as company president. But since its inception in 2005, the company has experienced continuous growth despite the recession. Over the past few years, it has nearly doubled revenue and added more than 200 new customers.
