Mr. Navtej Singh ("Naffi")Co-Founder & Director
Naffi is a serial entrepreneur with over thirty years of experience in building new businesses. He began his career in advertising, but soon left it to get into the fast food business, where he developed three successful franchises. Later he founded an interactive digital media agency with a partner. It was one of the early movers in this new space in the ‘90s. With the rise of the Internet in late 1990s, Naffi decided to start a technology incubator with three other partners. Several innovative ideas were hatched and funded by venture capital at the incubator. One of them was Cazh, a patented e-payments platform, which is now running the Financial Process Exchange (FPX) in Malaysia.
At the time of the exit from Cazh in 2004, mobile apps had just started appearing in the first wave of smart phones. Sensing the potential opportunity of this new trend in mobility, Naffi started Tagit to bring innovative applications to traditional consumer businesses, such as banking, travel and entertainment.
Naffi is an Alumni of the the University of Singapore (now known as NUS) and did his post-graduate degree at The Pennsylvania State University. He is a Captain (Reservist) in the Singapore Armed Forces, and serves on the Alumni Advisory Board of the National University of Singapore.
