About Hakim

Passionate about FinTech and it's ability to empower consumers & businesses by leveraging technology to make financial products more efficient, transparent, and helpful for everyone.

MiT Sloan & Princeton alum who has spent 8+ years working in structured product sales at Goldman Sachs. While at MiT Sloan, I worked at Shopkick in its earliest stages as it was assembling its founding team & securing Series-A funding. I recently made the full-time transition from Wall Street to FinTech, and am now working @Behalf, a B2B small business lending company here in NYC.

Quote

“You've got to eat while you dream. You've got to deliver on short-range commitments, while you develop a long-range strategy and vision and implement it. The success of doing both. Walking and chewing gum if you will. Getting it done in the short-range, and delivering a long-range plan, and executing on that.” - Jack Welch
