Defense Entrepreneurs Forum


DEF San Diego is excited to host another Drink & Think on Thursday, July 25th at 6:00 PM at Pali Wine Co in San Diego. Join us, along with others in town for the Navy Gold Coast event, as we enjoy a social time of introducing new members of the local national security community, academia and entrepreneurs while discussing how the San Diego contributes to bridging the civil military divide.

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 & Think 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 Pali Wine Co or you can take a rideshare.

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.
