Our Story

BlackHawk Data’s First Year

In early 2018, BlackHawk Data’s founders, Maryann Pagano and Jason Caparoso, left their jobs to start an IT company that empowers its employees to provide high-touch service to their clients without being blocked by management. Maryann and Jason knew the odds: 20% of small businesses fail before their first year. As a woman-owned business in the IT industry, they faced an even greater challenge: Less than 10% of executive tech roles are held by women.

A Joint Effort

BlackHawk Data beat the odds thanks to Maryann’s leadership, sales and marketing experience paired with Jason’s honest, vendor-agnostic, knowledgeable approach to network engineering and design. BlackHawk Data was ready to bring the best possible service to clients with an office in the Empire State Building and a $1 million win in their first five months of business.

Clients at the Center

Today, Maryann and Jason are still committed to their mission of keeping clients at the center of BlackHawk Data. BlackHawk Data is changing how technology is designed, delivered and managed by serving both public sector entities and private enterprises.
