Defense Entrepreneurs Forum


We hope you’ll be able to join us for the next DEF Detroit Drink & Think on Monday, April 22nd at Fowling Warehouse-Hamtramck at 5:45 PM. Join the DEF Detroit Crew for a chance to check out the original football bowling pin game, socialize, and learn more about the regional innovation space while meeting (and beating) other virtuous insurgents (in games of sport)! Thanks to the US Army CCDC Ground Vehicle Systems Center (the artist formerly known as TARDEC) for co-hosting.

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? 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, but rideshares are never a bad plan either.

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.
