Sanjay Shah has invested many efforts into the fundraiser charity event, Autism Rocks. It wasn’t apparent at first how he wanted to be able to contribute to cause until he met with Snoop Dogg one afternoon and they talked about setting up concerts around the world to raise awareness for the cause. Since then, Sanjay Shah has been able to set up multiple events with some of the biggest music artists in the industry like Prince and Lenny Kravitz.
Sanjay Shah’s family originated from Kenya and eventually made their way to Central London. He began to attend medical school in hopes of becoming a doctor. Soon after, he changed his mind and took a dip into the accounting world where he worked for several years. He began to grow tired of the hustle and grind of working for someone else, and decided to take a leap and start his own brokerage business. It did not take long for him to reach $280 million dollars with his brokerage business called Solo Capital. Solo Capital now has several businesses in Dubai and in London that operate very successfully and have allowed Sanjay Shah to sit back and let the businesses take over. This has allowed him to concentrate his efforts and time on other areas of interest such as Autism Rocks.
Autism Rocks is especially close to Sanjay’s heart, because of his son who was diagnosed with Autism in 2011. His wife and he were able to take their son to a specialist and get him the best doctors available. Sanjay understands that not everyone is able to do that, and he wanted to be able to help those in need who aren’t as fortunate. The charity, Autism Rocks will help with that. Not only does he want to be able to help those in need, but also find a cause for the unfortunate disorder. With more research and studies, he hopes that his contributions will help to discover how it happens and hopefully, someday, find a cure.
In the meantime, he continues to work with artists setting up gigs that will aid in the fundraising process of raising money for Autism Rocks. He has been fortunate enough to be able to work in the music industry and reach out to some of these artists that are willing to help with the cause. His hopes in the future include reaching out to some artists that would donate one of their tracks from their album to the cause and continue to raise more awareness. His efforts are focused and his resources are endless. Thanks to Sanjay Shah, we will hopefully be fortunate to find the causes of Autism, or better yet, find a cure to prevent it from happening at all.
