Defense Entrepreneurs Forum


We hope you’ll be able to join us for the first DEF Detroit Drink & Think of the year on Tuesday, February 19th at the Ready Player One at 6 PM. Join the laboratory formerly known as TARDEC (now the US Army Combat Capabilities Development Command, Ground Vehicle Systems Center) and the DEF Detroit Crew at this awesome industrial-modern space lined with retro arcade games(which also serves beer, cocktails and global pub grub). This will be a low-key chance to learn more about changes in the regional innovation space and meet other virtuous insurgents!

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.

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’s monthly Drink & Thinks are a great way 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 for everyone who plans on attending. Thanks in advance!

What are my transportation/parking options? Parking is available in the vicinity of the venue.

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.
