How Irma Olguin Scaled her Business into Millions of Dollars with Huge Workforce

Read about Irma Olguin who is a  budding entrepreneur who is first in her family to go to college. She decided to return to her home in Fresno and use  her skills for benefit of her native and community. She founded Bitwise Industries which has amassed $27 million in venture funding and has trained over 4,500 workers to code.

Fresno, California, is not where you’d expect to find a startup like Bitwise Industries, which trains tech workers, develops software and invests in tech-friendly real estate. It has $27 million in venture capital backing, a valuation of $100 million and 2019 revenue Forbes estimates at $20 million. “You could argue that Fresno is one of America’s most broken cities,” says cofounder Irma Olguin Jr., 39. “We have four of the ten poorest zip codes and one in four people live below the poverty line.” Olguin is determined to change those statistics.  (Source: Forbes)
