    “Though well aware of the available options, Code42 chose not take advantage of grants, tax breaks or incentives from city and state governments. Fortunately Code42 is a well-funded, private company
    experiencing the type of growth that required extending its space in earnest. As a result, Code42 has been able to support that expansion with a fabulous space and great place to work.” – Code42 spokesperson
