The expansion also means it will expand into seven states.
Mitchell Kapoor, a Bitwise investor, said: “With this expansion, the demonstrated impact of Bitwise Industries can now be shared with millions more underrepresented people across the country.”
He said: “Bitwise is expanding economic opportunities to reach the most vulnerable by creating accessible and attainable pathways to quality jobs.”
The mission of Bitwise Industries has always been to provide education and training to underprivileged communities.
The firm houses its education and job facilities in pre-existing buildings with an aim of regenerating deprived sections.
More than 8,000 non-traditional tech students have been trained, with 80 percent of those getting technical work and students increasing their earnings potential from $20,000 to $60,000 by the end of the program.
By 2013, the company has already transformed nearly a million square feet of commercial space in its markets, and intends to do so in the expansion cities.
