Portrait – Alpesh Patel, Mi-Group

Alpesh Patel was born in the Ugandan bush, had lunch with John Wayne and became a millionaire at 23. In between, he was kicked out his country with only a $100 and a pillow. Now he is the mobile entrepreneur behind Mi-Group.

Alpesh founded Mi-Fone in 2008, after leaving Motorola where he was their Director of Sales in Africa where he placed more than 5 million devices into the continent. Whilst there, he realized that the big brands were missing the point and that ultimately Africa was best served by Africans themselves.
