Hedge fund, Sanjay Shah is a millionaire who found himself studying medicine at King’s College to become a doctor. He soon found that he did not want to be a doctor, and became an accountant. He wanted more freedom after working the normal hard earned hours for someone else, and decided to open his own brokerage business. He grew up in Central London, but was originally from Kenya. After five years of owning his own business, he had reached a net worth of $280 million. His company is called Solo Capital and has businesses located in Dubai and London. He eventually was able to get to the point where he could just let the businesses run, and retire, to focus on something else.
Sanjay Shah and his wife found out that their son was diagnosed with autism in 2011. At that point, Sanjay’s efforts began to take a turn and lean towards donating and spreading awareness for the cause. Autism Rocks is extremely close to his heart because of his son, and he would like to be able to help others in need. He fortunately had the funds to get the best doctors and help for his son, but understands that many families do not have the money nor the resources to get the help that they need. He is geared towards find the cause for autism and is happy that he can raise money for the research as well as contribute his own money.
The music concerts gigs have ben a great way to raise money for autism research and data. Because of his experience in the music industry, he knows many artists and most of them are more than happy to support the cause, Autism Rocks. Now that Sanjay has his own charity, he is able to direct the money to different areas that need more research or more help. Sanjay’s ultimate goals is to gather artists that are willing to cooperate and have them donate a track, which will help the cause tremendously.
Sanjay’s efforts are highly appreciated by many, and the work that is being done with the charity, Autism Rocks, is phenomenal. He has invested much of his time, money and efforts into finding the cause for this unfortunate disorder and has high hopes of someday finding a cure.
