Lexi Novitske

Principal Investment Officer
In 2012 Lexi moved to Nigeria, from The United States, believing that the
country held immense untapped potential, having an under-penetrated
consumer population, expanding infrastructure and online access, and an
active entrepreneur network.

In 2014, Lexi launched Singularity Investments as the Principal Investment
Officer where she oversees the firm’s operations in Africa. Singularity lends its relationships and expertise to source extraordinary investment
opportunities, while supplying the skills, resources, and capital to grow
portfolio companies into industry leaders across the continent.

Singularity invests in visionary entrepreneurs in technology-enabled, early-stage companies in Sub-Saharan Africa. Typical sectors of interest will include Mobile & Web-Based Services, Technology & Software, Digital Infrastructure, and Digital Media & Entertainment.

Lexi previously managed investments at Nigerian private equity firm Verod
Capital Management. Prior to joining Verod, she was focused on Africa
investments at Small Enterprise Assistance funds and in financial services
at New York-based Sandler O’Neill Asset Management.

Lexi is a board member and advisor to several early-stage companies and
faculty member and mentor to several accelerators and startup academies. Lexi is a CFA Charterholder and a Kauffman Fellow.
