Sanjay Shah founded Solo Capital in 2011. Solo Capital specializes in proprietary trading and consulting that includes but is not limited to commodities, derivatives, commercial advisory and performance management. Shah has worked really hard to make Solo Capital the trusted company that it is today. He founded the company after deciding to quit his job as an accountant. He was working at an investment firm and has worked for many trusted banking positions as well. He told himself that he would dedicate one solid year to the company and put the efforts needed to make the company thrive. He has actually owned many companies prior to Solo Capital, so he understands what it takes to run a successful company. One thing he knew is that he couldn’t do it alone, so he hired some employees to help him get the business started quickly and efficiently. He just wasn’t sure how quickly it would take off. After three years of business, Solo Capital entered into the million dollar market, making it a million dollar company. Solo Capital gave Shah the option to retire and become financially secure to pursue other business ventures.
Shah studied pre-med for some time before deciding it wasn’t something he wanted to do. He quickly turned to the accounting and financial side of the industry. He graduated with his degree King’s College and began to work as an accountant.
Shah has been involved in many businesses and is a philanthropist by heart. He started Autism Rocks in 2014 after an eventful lunch with Snoop Dogg. Shah had been in the music industry prior to Solo Capital, so he was familiar with many of the major music artists such as Snoop Dogg. Snoop Dogg actually urged Shah to get back into the music industry, and to use his talents in the industry to raise money for Autism Rocks. Shah’s youngest son was diagnosed with autism when he was just two years old, and Shah has had his heart on trying to understand the neurological condition since the day of diagnosis. It is a widely misunderstood condition that many people are becoming diagnosed with, and although at times it can be very hard to understand, he wants to try and understand it better. Autism Rocks is an invite only concert that helps raise money for the cause. Shah is able to donate the proceeds to different foundations, universities and their programs. He has recently hired on two new trustees that will help with the growing charity to assist with the concerts and the financial side of the charity. His past experience and business savvy roles have played a huge part in his success, and he continues to exhibit that through Austim Rocks.
