Stephanie Ode Wilson is a young real estate mogul and technologist who is regarded as one of Ghana’s outstanding entrepreneurs and making a huge dent in two heavily male-dominated industries across the region.
Stephanie is the Chief Executive Director of Upper Crust properties and technology solution, a privately owned property development and security systems consultancy firm in Ghana where she provides all-round property development, management and security systems installation services.
She is an alumnus of the Kumasi Girls Senior High School and currently in her 3rd Semester at Bluecrest University, the ever industrious visionary who worked for Shieldsoft Consult as Accounts Manager from 2016.
After picking interest in Construction as a child and having her ambitions shattered by a JHS tutor, the inexperienced 17-year-old at the time committed to learning by any means necessary and surrounded herself with constructors and architects at any given time during her days in High School. With support from her family, she started importing building interior materials such as tiles, wall coverings and security doors.
After 3 years of gaining knowledge, expertise and a strong network, she coordinated and built a team of constructors with over 25 years of experience. She thus led the client acquisition campaigns, brought in the contracts under her company name and executed them with her team. In 2017, she proceeded to sell 3 more houses for clients abroad.
Stephanie looks further to launching her ‘Girl Code Africa Initiative’. The initiative is aimed at teaching over 100,000 girls across the continent basic Coding, Web and App Development and equip them with Digital Skills across a 10-year period.
Recently, she was the recipient of the award for the “Outstanding Young Business Leader of the Year” at the 2019 edition of the Ghana Business Standard Awards. Stephanie embodies elegance and the spirit of a new breed of Young Female Leaders rising across the continent.
