CNAS Corporate Partnership Program

The Center for a New American Security (CNAS) develops bold, pragmatic, and principled ideas to shape and elevate the national security debate during a period of great change and consequence. The Center brings together the current and next generations of national security professionals—Democrats and Republicans, civilian and military—to reforge a bipartisan consensus around America’s approach to national security challenges. CNAS relies on critical general operating support from private-sector partners to advance its robust research agenda.

As part of the Corporate Partnership Program, corporate representatives can engage in a broad set of CNAS’ activities, including through invitations to events, interaction with our research programs, and access to the Center’s experts. Corporate partners can also participate in strategic policy conversations and have the opportunity to associate with the nation’s leading defense and security policy institute.

Why CNAS?

Genuinely Bipartisan

CNAS is the premier national security organization in Washington, DC that is led by both Democrats and Republicans and embraces both perspectives to advance America’s security.

The Next Generation

CNAS prepares the next generation of national security leaders and launches them into public service.
