KITEE-FELIX Startup Hackathon 2023

April 27, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - April 29, 2023 @ 5:00 pm

KITEE-FELIX Startup Hackathon

Apr 27-Apr 29, 2023 | Holiday Inn Hasbrouck Heights-Meadowlands, NJ

Apply Now (Early Application Deadline: March 31)


KITEE and FELIX are hosting the 2nd KITEE-FELIX Startup Hackathon (KF Hackathon) on April 27~29, 2023. The KF Hackathon is a No-code Idea-thon that allows the participants to network and experience the startup pitching process. The mentors and organizers will be actively involved through workshops, providing feedback to help harden the startup ideas and prepare for an IR deck and pitching. Although we will select three winners for small cash prizes, consider this as a networking event rather than a competition.

This is an in-person event. Physical presence is required.


Anyone interested in startups can apply while the focus is on the young generation under 35 years old. Those who are working at a funded startup can also participate, but should not use ideas from the startup.


Registration fee for KSEA/KITEE members is $50 if you register early by March 31, 2023 (after a $50 discount for KSEA/KITEE members and an early application discount of $50). This will cover 2-night lodging, meals, and refreshments throughout the event, and some of the travel costs if you travel from far away (conditions apply).

Due to the limited budget and the large size of support per person, we will close the registration when the number of participants reaches 24, but no earlier than March 31.

Schedule – April 27, Thursday – 5:30pm ~ 11:59pm: check-in, dinner, networking, Hackathon sessions

April 28, Friday – 8:00am ~ 11:59pm: Hackathon sessions, having three meals and snacks

April 29, Saturday – 8:00am ~ 8:00pm: pitching, award ceremony, dinner networking at the KSEA Northeast Regional Conference (NRC 2023)

Note: The pitch competition and the award ceremony of the KF Hackathon will be part of NRC 2023 that will be held at Montclair State University on April 29. Registration and participation at NRC 2023 is highly encouraged.

Travel Support

– $100 for those who are flying to NJ
– For those traveling from far, carpooling or taking Uber/Lyft is recommended. Up to $100 will be reimbursed based on the distance and the number of participants for the vehicle.
– Some portions of travel expenses that are not reimbursed by the KF Hackathon may be reimbursed by NRC 2023.


The participants are strongly recommended to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to protect the health and safety of all attendees.
