Autism Rocks Founder Sanjay Shah

Ever wondered who founded Autism Rocks and why? Sanjay Shah founded Autism Rocks in the year 2011 after his son was found to be suffering autism. His youngest suffered a condition whereby he could not hold up his food. After taking the boy to a hospital is when Shah and his wife found out that their son was suffering from autism. Shah, therefore, thought of coming up with an organization that would work to create awareness of autism and at the same time raising funds to support those kids who would not be as economically privileged as his son Nikhil.
Shah is a renowned entrepreneur in the UK’s economy. He owns Solo Capital and other range of financial brokerage companies within London. He has been working as an employee for many financial investment companies before starting his company in the year 2009. Solo Capital was the first ever of his companies. It was the economic slump of 2009 that made Shah redundant and had less motivation to look for another job, considered starting his company.
Shah’s parent immigrated into the United Kingdom in the 1960s to settle in London. Sanjay Shah was born in London and went to one of the best medical colleges in the city. He deserted the medical profession to work in the financial investment industry. His first employer was a bank by name Meryl Lynch. He worked another range of companies and banks until 2009.
Autism Rocks works by staging shows in different cities with the purpose of raising awareness and collecting money for use in autism research activities. The money collected is also used in helping the autism patients who might t have the financial ability to acquire the necessary medical services.
Sanjay Shah aims at increasing the organization’s funds by welcoming other billionaires to take part in the donation. He is also geared towards tripling the money collected through the shows.
