" About HackKTP

Welcome to the first-ever HackKTP, the annual Hackathon hosted by Kappa Theta Pi: Lambda. This event is dedicated to innovation, collaboration, and development within the tech industry.

Our fraternity understands the importance of utilizing the technology we have at our disposal to make a positive impact on the world. With that said, HackKTP is one of the many ways we give back to and empower members of our community.

As a Hackathon, HackKTP is a space that draws multidisciplinary talent to solve complex problems and create powerful solutions. We believe the best ideas come from working together and learning from each other. Beyond collaboration and innovation, we encourage development. Development to us encompasses everything technical to everything professional, and we hope to foster a space perfect for networking as well as adequately provide the technical resources so our participants can succeed.

HackKTP will take place in the middle of the fall semester, and we welcome all Boston University students to pre-register for the hackathon using the form below. Whether you’re an experienced coder or a newcomer to the tech industry, HackKTP is the perfect opportunity to collaborate with like-minded individuals and work on innovative projects.

We also would like to extend an invitation to organizations interested in sponsoring our event to reach out to us via the button below. As a sponsor, you will have the opportunity to connect with a talented pool of students and support this student-led event.

Thank you for considering HackKTP and we look forward to seeing you at our next event!
