Sanjay Shah: Super Businessman, Philanthropist and Father

Sanjay Shah is respected in business circles as the founder of Solo Capital, a successful, international boutique financial services house based in London, but he’s also known for other incredible achievements.

Mr. Shah is father to son Nikhil who was diagnosed with autism, and in his never-ending quest to improve his youngest child’s condition and help find a cure, he established the globally popular Autism Rocks charity organization. The money raised goes to funding autism research, something Mr. Shah strongly believes in.

The well-respected businessman recently sat down with radio host Eric Dye on the Entrepreneur Podcast Network in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates. During their discussion, they touched upon starting one’s own business and all the fine details that go with it, including the money needed up front and hiring experts to handle the complicated challenges that can develop.

Mr. Shah suggested that anyone can own a business, but making it a successful venture is another thing. That’s what Solo Capitol does perfectly, provides the right financial services in agency brokerage, investment management, securities lending and safeguarding.

Mr. Shah was also excited to talk about Autism Rocks and the upcoming 2016 Autism Rocks Fest jam-packed with family fun and amazing musical performances by Flo Rida and Tyga. The invitation only concert always features a superb line-up of talent and has become the ideal way to bring global attention to autism and the one in every 68 children a year who are diagnosed with the condition. The fest takes place in London with a lot of VIP guests in attendance who are more than happy to donate to this most worthy cause.

According to Mr. Shah, Nikhil was diagnosed with the neurodevelopmental disorder in 2011 at the age of 4. The closely-knit family of five keeps the public up to date on social media all year long, with Twitter and Instagram updates.
