***THIS EVENT SIGN-UP IS NOW CLOSED – SECURITY ARRANGEMENTS PRECLUDE FURTHER ADDS***
DEF Washington DC is excited to host a Drink & Think event with members from around the innovation community on Tuesday, February 13th at 6:00 PM at the UK Embassy. Come enjoy camaraderi and discussion with the teams working to support a culture of innovation in national security through partnerships, community development, fellowships, and more.
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 if this is a free 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 broader area near the Embassy, 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.
