We let the cat out the bag about this when we announced Singularity Investment’s investment in Asoko Insight. One of the key people from Singularity, Lexi Novitske, has penned a four-part startup funding advice series that I’m super excited about.

Who’s Lexi? Read her profile.

In 2011 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 joined 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 & Digital Media & Entertainment.

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

That’s Lexi. And this is the series’ first article. Enjoy, and return again on Thursday for the next instalment. And by all means, discuss each post in the comments.
