Sanjay Shah and his firm, Solo Capital, were featured in a recent article for PR Newswire about Shah’s incredible success in is professional life and latest philanthropic endeavor. Shah established Solo Capital as a global brokerage firm with headquarters in London. He interviewed by Eric Dye of Entrepreneurial Podcast Network’s Enterprise Radio about his personal story of accomplishments as an investor and wealth manager. In the interview, Shah was asked to share his advice as a respected entrepreneur so that other businessmen looking to replicate his success could hear the secrets to his achievements. The most essential advice that Shah had to share was that it takes more money and resources than you initially plan for to get a new business venture off the ground. In addition, Shah cautioned that new entrepreneurs should be prepared to outsource various tasks in order to focus their time and energy on getting their new business to take off.
Although Shah has been incredibly successful at paving the way for his professional development, his personal life has come with its fair share of challenges. Shah’s son was diagnosed with autism several years ago. This personal crisis was the motivation for Shah to launch his own foundation to support autism research and awareness. He established Autism Rocks in 2014 with the help of various celebrities, including Snoop Dogg. The premise behind his charity, Autism Rocks, is that the organization hosts various concerts with famous artists. The proceeds from the ticket sales are donated to fund neurological research focused on autism as well as awareness initiatives to increase the general public’s understanding of autism.
Shah has been such an innovator with Autism Rocks that he is almost more recognized as a philanthropist than an investor. He has forged connections with big name recording artists and continues to expand his network of celebrities involved in the cause. Shah is known for putting famous faces on the fight for autism awareness. Through Autism Rocks, Shah has made autism an extremely popular cause for other charity organizations and celebrities. He continues to be inspired by his son’s struggles everyday.
