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

Our mission is to strengthen the connections between SoCal tech startups and Silicon Valley resources.


We help you to get the missing pieces your startup needs for the next level.

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


This is our SoCal group; see also our Silicon Valley 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,

* 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.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
