Business & Finance From Repairman to Entrepreneur: How One Man Built a Thriving Phone Repair Business

Kenyans online sources of the most trusted and best blogs and articles about busienss.

When Amos Omondi started tinkering with electronics as a student, he never imagined that passion would one day blossom into a successful phone repair company. But through perseverance and smarts, Omondi has grown Amotech Solutions from humble beginnings into a reputable service centre serving clients across Kenya.

After feeling stifled and underpaid as a repair technician for a leading smartphone dealer, Omondi decided to bet on himself by launching his own repair shop. But transforming his dream into reality wasn’t easy. With little capital to get started, Omondi struggled in those early days to keep the lights on and build a customer base.

After a few false starts and studio apartment-sized offices, Omondi eventually secured a more visible location at Kenya Cinema. Word spread about Amotech Solution’s quick smartphone turnarounds and technical prowess. Before long, a swelling clientele from Nairobi and beyond kept Omondi’s five specially trained repair technicians busy around the clock.

Now eyeing county-wide expansion, Omondi aims to strengthen partnerships with phone dealers and manufacturers to cement Amotech Solutions as the premier mobile device repair stop in the region. He’s also paying it forward by opening a training college to equip the next generation of repair professionals with the skills to thrive.

Omondi’s story offers inspiration and practical lessons for anyone dreaming of converting their employment experience into an independent enterprise. With grit and smarts, those side hustling skills could blossom into so much more.
