Sanjay Shah is a businessman and entrepreneur who has developed many companies throughout his career as an accountant. He came from Kenya and traveled to London where he started College to study medicine. He soon realized that wasn’t what he wanted to do, and began to study accounting. After graduating with his accounting degree, he started working for investment firms and banking businesses. He started Solo Capital on a whim after resigning from his accounting job. He hired a few college graduates and some of his fellow trading partners to help get the new investment firm up and running. He told himself that he would give it a year to progress and work hard at it to see where the business went. It developed quickly and has a reported income of a million dollars. It has allowed Shah to retire and tend his efforts towards another passion of his, called Autism Rocks.
Solo Capital is a proprietary investment and consulting firm that is very successful in the London and Dubai areas. With over thirty nine offices running and working the business continually, he has been able to concentrate on a charity he started called Autism Rocks. He started the charity in 2014. His youngest son was diagnosed with autism in 2011 and at the time it was quite a shocking discovery to his wife and himself. They didn’t know a whole lot about the condition, but he wanted to find out more and help his son as best as he could. He started Autism Rocks and received the idea after a cup of tea at his Dubai home with a visit from his friend, Snoop Dogg. He urged him to get back into the music industry, so he decided to stage concerts all over the world focusing on raising funds for the neurological condition and raising awareness. More people are becoming diagnosed with autism, and if he can help them understand the symptoms as well as the effects, he believes people in general have a better chance with the discovery. His charity event hopes to help those that need it most.
