About Us

We are a tight team of experienced international entrepreneurs and seasoned board members looking to add value to our partners not only in investing but also in corporate governance, networking and strategy.

Our Mission

Accompanying startups from their early stages and helping them prepare for expansion and more significant fund-raising rounds.

Our Activities

Multi-Family Office Services

Located in Geneva since 2016, Lexa Finance SA provides a wide range of services to private and institutional clients who require independent advisory services particularly with regards to their asset allocation. Thanks to our agreements with top market players we support our clients in their dealings with financial and legal institutions.

Blockchain and Crypto currency

Open to new technologies and innovative ideas, we started investing in this sector in 2017 by participating in Coinbase’s Series D round. Since then we have diversified our interests in various assets.
One of our early Angel investments, in a smart automated crypto investing platform, recently raised $35m on a $168m valuation Series-A round (October 2021).

Quick Serve Restaurant Franchises

Incorporated in 2012 with the aim to become the premier food operator on the continent, this London Stock Exchange Group acclaimed and dubbed “Company to Inspire Africa” counts over 180 Domino’s Pizza, ColdStone Creamery and PinkBerry branded stores in Nigeria as well as Kenya and is now looking to roll out in Ghana, Ivory Coast and Uganda amongst other countries.

Real estate

An inevitable inclusion for smart asset allocations, we have direct involvement in carefully selected projects in several countries. Our investments aim to bring a geographic diversification to Inovnis while seizing market opportunities. We buy to renovate and sell or develop from the ground up, mostly residential real estate. We also have the flexibility to participate in larger projects through partnerships and debt financing.

Duty free

Teaming-up with the market leader in travel retailing, we opened first class duty-free retail shops in Nigeria and more specifically in Abuja and Lagos. This venture has been operating successfully since 2015. As part of our development plan, we will be also operating out of new terminals in other major Nigerian cities and expanding into border shops.
