Defense Entrepreneurs Forum


**This DEF Pop-Up D&T piggy-backs on an existing event – see below to register for that paid event**

DEF Los Angeles will be having a Pop-Up Drink & Think on Thursday, 17 May starting at 6:30 PM – we will join the AI LA meet-up event at Phase Two in Los Angeles, with the option to have drinks at Father’s Office following the conclusion of the event.

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 LA’s monthly Drink & Think is a great way to learn more.


Why should I register? Registration on this page is required in order to attend the event. This is not hosted by the DEF LA group, but an opportunity to expand our existing connections. Please be kind and register!

What are my transportation/parking options? Recommend ride-sharing, but parking is available in the general area of the event.

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.
