Recently, Sanjay Shah was interviewed for the Entrepreneurial Podcast Network’s Enterprise Radio by Eric Dye. The successful businessman touched on a range of topics from business to charity. Sanjay Shah is famous for his role in creating a charity organization, Autism Rocks. The organization aims to raise funds to aid in the research efforts in the neurodevelopmental disorder. Before forming the organization, Shah was involved in running a brokerage firm he founded in 2011, Solo Capital.
In the interview, Shah gave advice to all those seeking to start a business never to underestimate the real amount of money required in making the move of starting. He goes on to add that the entrepreneur should never make the assumption that they can handle the journey alone.
The establishment of Autism Rocks saw Sanjay Shah combine his love for music as well as his passion for family with his entrepreneurial and enterprising spirit. His ultimate goal for the organization was to provide funding for research and awareness creation on the neurological disorder. In April 2016, Autism Rocks has plans to hold the 2016 Autism Rocks fest that will involve activities for the whole family. The festival will feature renown artists such as Flo Rida and Tyga.
Shah’s journey has been a long one. Contrary to what many people think, his journey started with Shah studying Medicine and training as a doctor. He, however, ended up becoming an accountant and worked for various investment banks among them Morgan Stanley, Merrill Lynch, and Credit Suisse. During the financial crisis that rocked the country in 2009, Mr. Shah was made redundant. He went ahead to form his own brokerage firm, Solo Capital.
Apart from his pursuits in the business world, Sanjay Shah is also a great philanthropist. A great deal of his philanthropy journey is attributed to the fact that his son was diagnosed with autism in 2011. Autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder. Shah went ahead to found an organization, Autism Rocks, that hosts various concerts with a view of raising money to fund research into the disorder. He has experienced great success with the organization.
