PRESS RELEASE – Stephanie Obi, author of Amazon best-seller ‘Knowledge is the New Gold’ and one of Africa’s pioneer online course creation strategists is rising up to the challenge of creating innovative solutions that would help African women generate revenue in this challenging time and beyond.

Stephanie Obi wants to help bridge the education gap among women through professional training

A techpreneur with over a decade of cognate experience in online course creation, Stephanie Obi has helped thought leaders like Ibukun Awosika, Tara Fela-Durotoye and more to develop online courses which have supported the overall growth and development of women in Nigeria and beyond. Well known for her online course platform, Trainquarters, Stephanie connects women with one another and helps them to identify and grow multiple streams of income.

She said apart from the financial gains, which could improve the standard of living of the people, online courses could bridge the country’s huge education gap through training from experienced professionals.

To this end, Stephanie aims to empower women throughout Africa by helping them increase their earning capacity with the Perfect Online Course Framework- a system that teaches people how to turn their knowledge into profitable courses. The Knowledge is the New Gold challenge which is her brainchild, will eliminate the initial challenges African entrepreneurs face when they begin to create online courses.

“Over 200 African entrepreneurs have already signed up for the first stream of the Knowledge is the New Gold challenge which is in partnership with SheCluded- a growth finance company for female entrepreneurs, who will provide short term loans to qualified candidates” Stephanie says.

While speaking on this initiative, she noted that it is worrisome how the coronavirus pandemic has had a strain on the world economy but added that the knowledge industry in Africa is an unexplored goldmine and now is the best time to tap into it.

“By the end of 2020, our mission is to have 10,000 entrepreneurs who have created wealth using our perfect online course method” she says. To participate in the challenge, partner on this initiative and to receive regular updates, please contact [email protected] or visit to start.
