With World Refugee Day (20th June) this month a new book Tested by Alpesh H. Patel has been released about an African Indian refugee who arrived in UK with nothing, but went on to become a successful entrepreneur?

Tested is Alpesh’s true, unconventional story explaining his journey from refugee to international entrepreneur. Far from being a slick get-rich quick tale, Tested follows the gritty reality of this maverick businessman as he travels the world looking for opportunities, making mistakes and – sometimes – getting it very right.

“The rhythm of Tested is as palpable as a hard-hitting, hip-hop classic from Jay Z, as humorous as a Russell Howard or SNL skit and as emotional as an R&B ballad from Marvin Gaye or Beyoncé. All of this is underpinned by a cheeky, cocky west London attitude with an Afro-Indian edge!” Buki Mosaku, Founder of Inquire Management.
