CEO's Message

Alpesh Patel founded mi-Fone, the FIRST AFRICAN Mobile Devices brand, in 2008. As leaving Motorola where he was their Director of Sales in Africa he realized that the big brands were missing the point and that ultimately Africa was best served by Africans themselves. mi-Fone was formed out of a passion to empower and educate mass market African consumers with access to the Internet as well as using the Device as an Information gateway. By placing millions of low cost Feature and now Smartphones into the hands of African consumers, mi-Fone will realize its dream in enabling a whole continent to become productive and in turn to become more prosperous.
