DEF Boston will be hosting our next Drink & Think this year on Thursday, 28 March at 6:00 PM at MIT’s The Engine. COL Melissa Adamski of the Army’s 75th Innovation Command wil be talking about the mission of the new Army Futures Command and how the 75th Innovation Command, a reserve unit with soldiers in technology hubs all around the country, will be engaging industry and entrepreneurs on its behalf.
Come join a host of other people that care about national security innovation to talk about ongoing projects and upcoming events (perhaps even discussing a DEFx Boston event). We’d love to hear about some of your awesome ideas!
The Defense Entrepreneurs Forum is a non-profit network of problem solvers in the military, government and private sector that work together to increase innovation and support disruptive thinkers in the national security space. The mission of DEF is “Inspire – Connect – Empower” and involves not only monthly gatherings around the world, but periodic DEFx events, an annual conference, and ongoing collaboration via Slack, Facebook and LinkedIn. DEF communities usually meet once a month to hear innovative leaders, entrepreneurs and authors share their stories and to get new ideas flowing in a casual environment (where uniforms and rank are left at the door).
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 the DEF’s monthly Drink & Thinks are great ways to learn more.
Why should I register if this is a free event? Taking the couple minutes it takes to register helps the local DEF team to better prepare the planned space and coordinate with the restaurant for everyone who plans on attending. Thanks in advance!
What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event? Parking is available in the broader area and the venue is a decent rideshare away from most places.
How can I contact the organizer with any questions? Feel free to message DEF any questions you may have on Facebook in advance, or shoot us an email. We don’t like spam, but are interested in just about anything else that falls into DEF lanes, so, when in doubt, reach out! We are, after all, about connecting people.
