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.

That’s a difficult one! I would go with Keanu Reeves. After a long day, we would have a burger, talk about life, and I would get some wisdom from him. I just hope he doesn’t bring his pencil. For the second roommate, I would go for Hans Zimmer, listening to him playing his music everyday would be absolute joy. Might be too much at some point though and I would be like “Hans! c’mon, man! It’s 2 am. I need to sleep”
That would be Nat King Cole or Avicii!
Probably memorizing every movie quote out there. It’s not completely useless though. I use it a lot to be sarcastic without being rude.
Shipfaced or Lightweight.
Checklists and early morning workouts (last one doesn't happen too often tho).
I make the right decisions, mostly.
