What we're about

The Defense Entrepreneurs Forum is a non-profit dedicated to promoting and enabling a culture of innovation in the US national security community. The mission of DEF is to inspire, connect and empower people committed to national security through convening events, forging partnerships and delivery of tangible solutions. Some of the ways the connections happen include monthly gatherings, periodic DEFx events, an annual conference, and ongoing collaboration via Slack, Facebook and LinkedIn.

If you are a military member, work in government, are an entrepreneur focused on national security, or find the idea of helping solve tough problems enticing, then DEF LA's monthly Drink & Think is a great way to learn more.
