Welcome to Building the Base, a unique discussion focused on shaping the future of the national security industrial base For over 40 years, the non-profit organization Business Executives for National Security, or BENS for short, has brought senior executives and best business practices from across our country together to address our Nation’s most pressing security challenges. The BENS mission is more important now than ever before. Hear from top entrepreneurs and leaders from the high tech, financial, industrial, and public sectors, as they share their ideas and perspectives about how we can all work better together to ensure our national security and prosperity. Building the base is hosted by long time BENS member and leader of the BENS Technology and Innovation Council Lauren Bedula and former Chief Weapons buyer and innovator for Special Operators, Sailors, and Marines and now BENS distinguished fellow: Hondo Geurts!
