Assembly member Joaquin Arambula will recognize Bitwise Industries co-founder and co-CEO Irma Olguin Jr., as woman of the year at a ceremony March 6 at the Assembly Chambers in Sacramento.


“Thanks to Irma’s leadership, the tech industry is recognizing the opportunities and advantages of locating or expanding their operations in Fresno,” Arambula said in a statement. “Irma’s leadership in the tech industry is inspirational.”

Olguin’s main role at Bitwise is to make sure the company stays faithful to its mission and vision of identifying the missing pieces in the Central Valley’s burgeoning technology industry, according to a news release from Arambula’s office. She also acts as a strategist for partnerships in each of Bitwise’s divisions.

She is also co-founder of </> Edit LLC, a software company with two product subsidiaries, Buildicus Inc., and Montage Inc. Olguin is also the founder of fundraising platform OverFundIt LLC, where she acts as the information technology manager for West Hills Financial and Nature’s Joy.

Olguin is highly sought after as a public speaker at educational institutions, events and conferences, and is involved in various other tech-related endeavors that aim to give people the tools to change their own lives, according to Arambula.
