***THIS EVENT IS CAPPED AT 50 PEOPLE – REGISTRATION CLOSES ON 11 APRIL AT 1130 PM EST***
DEF Washington DC is excited to host our April Drink & Think event in concert with Pivotal Labs in DC. Come enjoy camaraderi and discussion about their approach to agile software development and applications towards the Department of Defense, then hear from the Project Kessel Run regarding their work to create new tools for the Air Operations Center and other key nodes around the Air Force. Then have a drink (covered by ticket cost) and talk with others in the national security innovation space here in DC. It’ll be great!
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 Washington DC meets at least once a month 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… unless it’s at the Pentagon, in which case, comes with the territory).
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 Washington DC’s monthly events are a great way to learn more.
Why should I register for this event? 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 for getting to and from the event? Parking is available in the vicinity, but a taxi or ride share is recommended.
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.
