Africa's leading e-commerce platform Jumia says it has won funding of more than $325 million from French, German, South African and U.S. companies eager to invest in one of the continent's fastest-growing online economies.

The investment announced from U.S. investment bankers Goldman Sachs, French insurance multinational AXA, German startup Rocket Internet and a long-time backer, South African telecommunications giant MTN.
