Innovation in
National Security

NatSec.io is an exploratory effort incubated by the Defense Entrepreneurs Forum in 2021 that seeks to increase understanding of the national security innovation ecosystem, improve data literacy, and support learning mindsets with opportunities to experiment.


We think four elements can help interested people on their own journeys discover and help create value in and around the national security innovation ecosystem.


What powers the project (and an easy way to contribute).


How the project data is connected.


Where to find the project in your neighborhood.


How national security innovation shows evolution over time.

Get Involved

None of us are as smart or connected as all of us; we need your questions, ideas, and insights. Each element has the potential for you to build a better understanding of the features, factors, and forces that underpin national security innovation (and help others along the way). Join the Team!
