DEF started as a movement of passionate doers that saw a need for greater innovation in the defense and national security community. We have continued to grow the virtuous insurgency since our first national conference in 2013 and membership helps us connect at a much greater scale!


As always, DEF is free to join – we value diversity and recognize that low barriers to entry are important to cultivate a vibrant community. We are constantly trying to deliver value for members and iterate to connect, inspire, and empower every member.
