Defense Entrepreneurs Forum


DEF Los Angeles and MD5 are excited to reunite friends for a Drink & Think at 6:00 PM on December 13th at General Assembly in Santa Monica. Come join us, have a drink, and connect with like-minded professionals who see the need for innovation. This month will kick-off with a young entrepreneur sharing the story of how his team’s innovation can contribute to national security issues. Our experienced panel will talk about how their work in the tech and national security space has an impact on each other.

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 inspireconnect 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’s monthly Drink & Think 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 for everyone who plans on attending. Thanks in advance!

What are my transportation/parking options? Parking is available in the broader area of the venue, but a rideshare is always a good idea.

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.
