Solo Capital is a successful proprietary trading and consulting firm that is located in Central London and Dubai. They have 39 locations that are in full operation ready to serve their clients with the utmost expertise. The founder and owner behind Solo Capital is Sanjay Shah. He is responsible for building the company from the ground up. He initially told himself when first starting the company that he would give it one year of hard work and dedication. Solo Capital has now reached the million dollar mark and has a reported net worth of $280 million. This alone was enough for Sanjay Shah to semi-retire from the company.
Before he semi-retired from Solo capital, he worked as an accountant. He initially went to college at King’s College to study medicine and eventually decided that’s not what he wanted to do. So he transitioned his career to accounting and finance. He studied accounting and graduated with his degree, and then started working for an accounting firm. After many years in the accounting and banking business, he began to grow tired of the everyday grind and hustle of the working world. He had dreams of starting his own business. So he pursued his dreams and formed Solo Capital. Its success could never have been determined or imagined, but it took off running very rapidly. His business expanded so fast that he was able to “take a back seat” to the business and focus his attention on another area of passion, autism.
Autism has become a very unique condition that Shah has been researching and donating to. He had been donating to children in India for a number of years, and now donates his money to the autism research industry. He became passionate about the condition when his son was diagnosed with autism when he was two years old. He wanted to be able to “fix” what happened, and realized he couldn’t, so he decided to try the next best thing. He launched Autism Rocks in 2014 to help raise awareness and aid in the fundraising process for the charity. Snoop Dogg stopped by his home in Dubai one day, and they go to talking about how he could help with the condition and get involved in the music industry. Snoop Dogg urged him to get back into his love for music and that’s how Autism Rocks was launched. He has set up agreements with some of the most famous music artists and stages concerts through them to help raise awareness and donations for the cause. Shah donates some of the money to Cambridge University to aid in their research, development and to also help patients and their families better cope with the effects of the condition.
