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.

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,

* Socialize and learn from each other.
