The DEF leadership team, members, and friends head out to the Rocky Mountains for the 2018 annual conference at Galvanize Denver on October 12th and the Grid Collaborative Workspace on October 13th and 14th! Colorado is home to numerous military bases and startup communities. Colorado is our Nation’s national security capital of the West – home of the Air Force Academy, Fort Carson, Peterson AFB, and Schriever AFB, with Buckley AFB nearby. Denver, Boulder, Fort Collins and Colorado Springs all have active ROTC programs and boast growing startup scenes with innovative companies. The defense innovation community is alive and thriving in Denver, and we will gather our innovative minds at this hub of innovation to continue the great work of the virtuous insurgency!
