Democracies need startups to innovate to make our world safer not only for defence, but also for security, democracy, energy, and climate change. Innovative technologies can win wars but they can also help to prevent them. You will  discover the stories from some of the best startup founders working in this space as they connect with the government entities and funders to bring their tech to market.


Defence tech is undergoing significant transformation as governments prioritise national security objectives and promote the adoption of commercial technologies for military use. Defence primes are actively seeking to engage with startups and embrace innovation. The connection between primes and the tech sector is imperative to prepare for future threats.


NATO and partner governments are increasingly embracing innovation to help them protect our democracies. We are in a time of rapid change in how wars are fought, democracies are protected, and societies become resilient to the many threats around us. This event will encourage engagement between the public sector, investors, and startup community to support adopting innovations and technological development.


Opportunities abound in the defence tech market, which is anticipated to increase to $184.7B by 2027. Governments' growing demand for innovative dual-use technologies to meet their national security goals is driving this market, which has a projected CAGR of 15.9%. Leading investors, LPs, and market-makers will be in attendance to provide insights on funding in this field.
