Hemavi was designed as an alternative to the traditional marketplaces, where finding the right roommate is pretty much like rolling a dice. Hemavi gives users the opportunity to see who their potential roommates are, dig deeper into their personality, lifestyle, and daily routine and decide whether they are actually a good fit to live together.
Today, with the help of our great team, Hemavi is live in Sweden, Denmark, the Netherlands and our vision is to continue our journey and make co-living a better experience in more countries and cities around the world.
Hazem is one of the founders of Hemavi, an algorithm-based matchmaking platform for roommates. Having started Hemavi with Co-Founder Pascal Dettwiler, these two had a vision of making co-living a safer, and a better experience, focusing on the compatibility between roommates and making the whole moving experience a more enjoyable one.
In 2021 and just a few months after launching Hemavi, Hazem won H.M. Kung Carl XVI Gustafs pris Årets Nybyggare as one of the best foreign entrepreneurs in south of Sweden. He comes from a corporate finance and financial restructuring background in the real estate sector securing syndications of more than USD 50 Million and managing a loan portfolio of USD 125 Million.
Hazem holds a Bachelor’s degree in Finance from the American University in Cairo and a Master of Finance from Lund University.
Hazem’s biceps are a huge part of his personality and unfortunately, he posts gym selfies sometimes. He’s also a huge F1 fan and won’t shut up about the 2021 final grand prix in Abu Dhabi.

Matt joined the Hemavi team as Product Manager pre-MVP in April 2021. He has a bachelor of laws (LLB) from the University of Nottingham, UK, and has been leading software development teams for the past 3 years - building & managing mobile/web apps in various fields such as finance, education, logistics, e-commerce, and advertising.
When it comes to what Matt actually does at Hemavi – nobody really knows, and we’re all just a bit scared to ask at this point. What we do know though, is that he’s your go-to guy when you’ve got problems, big ideas or…problems, mostly – very much like a therapist? But one who doesn’t tell you to fix things yourself, but rather conveniently fixes things for you.
When he’s not re-organizing the team’s priorities in an *cough* agile way, drafting mind-boggling whimsical flows, juggling between dozens of tasks that should’ve been done yesterday, or battling impostor syndrome every other week, Matt has a life - one he quite enjoys actually… when he’s got the time, that is.
