About Shift3 & Bitwise Industries.

Bitwise is a tech ecosystem designed to activate human potential for the technology industry in Underdog Cities around the country. Bitwise was founded in Fresno, California, in 2013 by Irma L. Olguin, Jr., and Jake A. Soberal. 

The Bitwise ecosystem is comprised of three robust lines of business that sustain and support its objectives:

1. Geekwise Academy is an accelerated training program that teaches people of all ages and skill levels the skills required to enter the technology industry as a software developer. The missional focus of Geekwise is to reach people and places that the technology industry has traditionally excluded. Geekwise offers boot-camp-style classes, apprenticeship programs, and a wide variety of support services to its students.

2. Shift3 Technologies is a world-class software consulting firm. Shift3 builds enterprise software solutions for clients in the San Joaquin Valley, Silicon Valley, and around the world. The missional focus of Shift3 is to recruit the very best talent out of Geekwise to model what it looks like to build an extraordinary technology company with non-traditional talent. Shift3 serves clients in government like the State of California and the United States Department of Defense, and private sector clients like Pivotal and Salesforce.

3. Bitwise Real Estate provides the spaces and places for the technology industry and people working in it to build vibrant, diverse, and inclusive community. Bitwise acquired, developed, and leased more than 250,000 SF of commercial real estate in Downtown Fresno; the projects now comprise Bitwise’s technology campus that is home to more than 200 technology companies.

Diversity and inclusion is at the heart of everything that Bitwise does. The Bitwise community in Fresno is > 50-percent female, > 50-percent minority, and about 20-percent first-generation American.
