An Eastern Kentucky business is getting national attention.

Fortune Magazine named Bit Source one of seven world-changing companies to watch.

Bit Source is a coding company based in Pikeville.

The company is looking to bring jobs to Eastern Kentucky.

They recently trained ten out-of-work coal miners how to code and hope to train more.

Rusty Justice, Partner in Bit Source, said he's proud to have the company in Eastern Kentucky.

"Anything that sheds a positive light on our region, we are very happy to be a part of," said Justice.

The company recently landed its first Fortune 500 company.

Bitsource was founded in 2014.
