Our Mission

Texas Defense Innovation Forum provides a curated community of practice to the Texas defense innovation enterprise through education, outreach, networking, and business development opportunities. TDIF enables its membership to solve complex National Security problems while maximizing economic opportunity for Texas businesses.

Maintaining the National Security of the United States is increasingly dependent on rapid development and implementation of disruptive technology. Texas has thriving technology and innovation centers, a long-established military presence, and a climate of patriotism. These attributes have made our Lone Star a cradle for a new defense innovation ecosystem, including government customers and strategists, defense industry partners and developers, research and academic institutions, and technology entrepreneurs working to solve wicked military problems.
