The Defense Entrepreneurs Forum (DEF) is a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit with a mission to promote a culture of innovation in national security. Founded in 2013, DEF grew rapidly as a grassroots movement and today has thousands of members across the country, with local chapters called Agoras and events happening nearly every week of the year. DEF strives for lasting, generational culture change in the national security ecosystem, envisioning a future where innovation and entrepreneurship are truly part of the organizational DNA. In this community, you will find passionate thinkers and doers from nearly every walk of life: from the public sector to the private sector, from academia to industry, from disruptive startups to big primes, from active duty service members to government civilians and contractors. Find out more about the defense innovation movement and join the "virtuous insurgency" today!

Learn about - and better yet, join! - a grassroots movement dedicated to innovation and culture change in national security. The DEF community is home to passionate innovators and disruptors who fight against the status quo and hack bureaucracy to make our defense and intelligence organizations better.
