When Sanjay Shahs parents migrated from Kenya to London, they had one thing in mind; to give their children the best upbringing. They settled in London, and they chose one of the best places in the area to raise their son, Sanjay Shah. He went to school in London, and he joined university there too. He studied medicine in college, but he felt that he was not ready to become a doctor. He abandoned this career, settling for accounting.
Shah felt that he could do well in accounting, but this career did not last for a long time. He was employed in several banks in London. He would, however, have to travel for a long distance to get to the office, and this made him get tired before getting to work. The millionaire would also spend too much time in the office sitting, and he felt that he was wasting his productive years in a job that was not paying him as much as he deserved. During the 2008 financial crisis that affected the banking industry, Shah left his employment.
After abandoning his accounting career, Shah changed completely, and he chose to be self-employed. Staying in the office for long hours was not what he wanted for himself. He wanted to utilize all his potential, so he started his brokerage company. The first step was to rent a small room to act as his office. He did this, and also, he looked for graduates who he employed to work in the office. Through hard work, the group managed to start Solo Capital, the company that is celebrated in London.
Solo Capital is based in Dubai and London, and reports show that it was incorporated in the year 2011. The company is very successful, and this made its founder, Sanjay Shah to get enough capital to open more than thirty-nine companies in different parts of the world. These companies are all under the management of Solo Group, and they are owned by the millionaire, Sanjay Shah. At forty-three years of age, the millionaire has been so successful that he decided to retire and concentrate on philanthropic activities in the world.
For many years, Shah would send financial help to children living in India. This was the only thing that caught his attention, and he felt that it’s the children who deserved help. His life changed completely when his son was discovered to have the autism condition. This traumatized his family as the child was going to therapy and medication, and this made him start a foundation for children suffering from the disease. He founded Autism Rock to create awareness about the disease as well as raise funds to help experts research about it too.
