Solo Capital’s founder Sanjay Shah recently spoke on radio about his company an d about his philanthropy. He is the founder of Autism Rocks, a charity organization dedicated to solving the mystery of Autism. Autism is a neurological disorder that afflicted Sanjay’s son Nikhil. The interview was hosted by pharmiweb.com, and in it he covered the bases of his breakthrough company and the charity he started.
His love of music went together with his love for his son in creating Autism Rocks. With it, he partners with the music industry to present celebrations that also serve as a funding stream for research into this heartbreaking disorder.
Before his son became ill, however, he had successfully launched Solo Capital. The company is a boutique financial services firm located in London, and is fully licensed and regulated to operate there. It focuses in proprietary trading, consulting and professional sports investments.
The company is only one of many companies Shah owns, that do business as far away as the Cayman Islands. In terms of business advice, Sanjay said in the interview that one should “never underestimate” the amount of money one will need to start. He also added that one should not “assume that you can actually do all of the work yourself.” This counsel is backed by a track record of successes, that would indicate that Shah is worth listening to.
It is ironic that Sanjay wound up as a major philanthropist for a medical condition, as he had originally studied medicine. He later took up accounting and business. Autism Rocks stemmed naturally from his love of music, when he was able to connect with the famous rapper Snoop Dogg. In putting together concerts that raise awareness and money, Shah has been able to make a difference in research. He has also contributed significant amounts of his own capital. For more about Autism Rocks, you can read the Friday magazine article that came out in April, 2016.
It is clear from the interview and his charity that Mr. Shah is truly a remarkable man. To get more information about him, take a look at some of the information available on the web.
