Defense Entrepreneurs Forum


DEF Washington DC is excited to join Omelas for our next Drink & Think on Tuesday, 12 February at 6:00 PM. Our focus is going to be artificial intelligence – Anthony Robbins, NVIDIA’s Vice President of North American Public Sector will be our guest speaker! We look forward to hosting those interested in national security, academia, entrepreneurship and related backgrounds as we look for ways to foster a culture of innovation in the community.

Omelas stops threats emanating from the online information environment. We track the behavior of non-state actors, proxy groups, and adversarial states, empowering corporate clients to protect their physical assets and government clients to safeguard their national security. In the federal space, we work on detecting, executing, and monitoring the effectiveness and performance of adversarial and counter-information operations. 

The Defense Entrepreneurs Forum is a non-profit network of public service intrapreneurs, private sector entrepreneurs and aligned innovators that promote a culture of innovation in the national security community. 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 communities usually meet 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).

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’s monthly Drink & Thinks are great ways to learn more.


Why should I register if this is a free event? Taking a couple minutes to register helps the local DEF team to better prepare the planned space and coordinate with the host for everyone who plans on attending. Thanks in advance!

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event? You can choose your own adventure, but we recommend either the metro or a ride-share to avoid parking challenges! Parking is available in the garage below the building or it’s one block from the McPherson Square Metro

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.
