Nigeria: Why Warriors' Andre Iguodala Joined African Unicorn Jumia's Board of Directors

Andre Iguodala, a key member of the Golden State Warriors basketball team, is no stranger to the tech industry. He's invested in Tristan Walker's Walker & Company, which has since been acquired by Procter & Gamble, electric scooter startup Lime and many others. Now, he's joined the board of directors over at Jumia, an African e-commerce startup that became the continent's first unicorn back in 2016.

"For me, it's really important because I have a lot of roots in Africa with my father being from Nigeria," Iguodala told TechCrunch over the phone this week. "I'm proud of that and willing to do a lot of things with a company that's on the forefront of the e-commerce space as a whole."
