Fresno-based Bitwise Industries continues to make progress on its new Bakersfield home at the southwest corner of 18th and H streets.

Bitwise Industries plans to hire and train 60 to 70 people in Bakersfield with some of the $50 million it has received through a new investment that also allows it to expand for the first time outside California.

The Fresno-based tech hub known for training minorities in computer coding expects to unveil the investment today. It told The Californian Tuesday the money will help it scale up and strengthen its current investments in California, including in Bakersfield.
