DEF Hampton Roads is thrilled to announce our next Link & Learn will be taking place at Gather Norfolk in Norfolk on Thursday, August 22nd at 6:00 PM. We’ve got a great evening planned that will include Ken Inglesby sharing about leading yourself as an entrepreneur, John Wayne Mullins, who is excited to share about creating values-based businesses. Networking and evening activities will be included, thanks to Gather Norfolk’s support and sponsorship, which we greatly appreciate!
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 Hampton Roads meets on a recurring basis 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 Hampton Roads’ monthly events 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 and coordinate with the restaurant for everyone who plans on attending. Thanks in advance!
What are my transportation/parking options? Parking is available in the vicinity, but taxi and ride share work as well.
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.
