Sanjay Shah is not just your average philanthropist and entrepreneur he is the the CEO of two major companies that he has brought into existence. Solo Shah is the name of his London based brokerage company. This brokerage firm helps investors who want to buy and sell securities. Autism Rocks is his other company and it was founded to help provide funding for autism research. Both companies are very important to Shah and he is glad that he is able to make a living from both his lines of work.
Sanjay Shah’s company Solo Capital was incorporated in 2011. Once the brokerage firm went public it became very successful. In an interview with Entrepreneur Podcast Network, Shah gave some important advice to new entrepreneurs who wanted to get their enterprises off the ground. Shah stated that an entrepreneur should have more than enough funding to get their business up and running. He also told new entrepreneurs that they should not try and do all of the work on their own.
Running a brokerage firm was never in Shah’s plans when he was in school. Instead, he wanted to become a doctor. During the course of his studies he decided not to pursue that interest. Shah went on to work in a brokerage firm. He liked it so much that it became a passion. He eventually started a brokerage firm of his own. Solo Capital went on to become a very successful firm grossing Shah millions of dollars.
Autism Rock was started in 2014 and this company was created in response to his son’s condition. Shah’s son was diagnosed with autism in 2011 but he realized that there was very little that he could do to help his son. Now, that Autism Rock is in operation, the company raises millions of dollars that goes toward researching this disease.
Sanjay has literally made more than enough money that he has retired from both of his companies. Even though he is retired he still continues enjoying being a part of Autism Rocks since it is a high profile company that showcases the talent of some very big entertainment stars.
