Branding, printing and production, technology development, training for youth, as well as social impact. His primary interests and skills revolve around product development matched with complementary business models and how technology can be used to usher impact.

With that in mind, Hakim often does training on the subject of product development, design thinking, and lean startup methodologies such as business model development.
