31-10-2014 • 33 min

Born in the Ugandan jungle while his parents were there on safari, Mi-Fone's CEO and Founder is the true meaning of "Indian Blood...African Heart". This original African Indian Entrepreneur made a name for himself selling large volumes of Mobile devices to the Chinese back in the 90s.

Alpesh founded Mi-Fone in 2008, after leaving Motorola where he was their Director of Sales in Africa where he placed more than 5m 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. His 20 years of experience in the mobile business is not to be taken lightly, and he is well respected on the continent for his knowledge. Alpesh has a deep palate for Nigerian delicacies and is ALWAYS the last man standing at Mi-Fone events. After living in 5 continents around the world, he now maintains residences in Mauritius, Dubai and South Africa... and of course has a resident seat on most Emirates flights!

At the time of this interview he was just named GQ's Best Dressed Man for 2014, so he looks the part as well :)
