It was while working there that he conceived the idea of Aurotech. He believed in a simple philosophy - "If you can do it for someone, you can very well make it work for yourself." Thus, Aurotech has conducted business since 2006.

Early on, he dedicated time to understanding the culture, markets, FAR guidelines, importance of certifications and understanding the challenges facing the government. In December 2006, Aurotech won its first prime contract and entered the mainstream market.

Patel has earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Mumbai, India.

On a personal front, Patel concentrates on promoting growth among uneducated parents and youth within the community. He has begun working with a non-profit organization to educate people through the use of technology. His hope is that this new knowledge will restore their hope, enlighten them and help pave the way for a brighter future. “You make a living by what you get, but you make a life by what you give."
