106 Miles is a network of startup founders, engineers, and friends.


Our mission is to educate and empower entrepreneurial engineers.

Our values are Reputation, Innovation, Solidarity, and Education.

This is our Silicon Valley group; see also our Southern California group.


Please join us if you're a founder or engineer (or friend!) and...

* You have worked at a startup,

* You want to work at a startup,

* You have started a company, and/or

* You want to start a company.

We meet a few times a month (second Wednesday of each month in Palo Alto, 6-9pm, and the fourth Wednesday of each month in San Francisco, 6-9pm; and now Southern California too) to...

* Socialize and learn from each other.

* Exchange ideas and information. Informally. Usually in a bar.

* Meet people at new startups.

* Meet people who want to work at startups.


106 Miles is symbolic of the journey entrepreneurs that take.

It's from The Blues Brothers:

Elwood: "It's 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses."

Jake: "Hit it."
