About the 280 Group name

Some of the world’s greatest companies have come to life along the Highway 280 Corridor in Silicon Valley. We help these companies and others worldwide to define, launch and market breakthrough new products. We decided to use the name 280 Group because the Highway 280 Corridor and surrounding areas are such a unique and meaningful part of Silicon Valley and the technology industry. From Sand Hill Road to Woodside to the Stanford campus, down south to Cupertino and San Jose, there is nowhere else in the world like the Highway 280 area for innovation and the entrepreneurial spirit.
