Recently, the Entrepreneur Podcast Network had the honor of hosting a very unique man – Sanjay Shah. Sanjay Shah came on radio to share his own experiences and thoughts on a show that acts as a platform for sharing entrepreneurial advice and information. It basically allows entrepreneurs from all over the world to share with one another. Sanjay Shah, who himself is a successful entrepreneur had one important message: Never underestimate the capital you’ll need to start a business. But who is Sanjay Shah? What has he done to deserve recognition?
Sanjay Shah is first and foremost an entrepreneur who is very good at what he does. He is the founder as well as the CEO of the financial institution known as Solo Capital Limited. Solo Capital Limited came into existence in 2011 in England. It specializes in financial services such as consultancy as well as proprietary trading. The company has in a span of roughly 4 years turned into a multimillion institution generating stupendous profits over the period. It is quite a remarkable fit for Shah who started out not as a banker or similar business guru but as a doctor having studied medicine. He later felt that his passion didn’t lie in medicine and opted to try out his hand in business as an accountant working for various investment banks. As a result of the financial crisis in 2009, however, he found himself without a job and deciding to open his own business and thus Solo Capital was born.
In addition to being a business guru, Sanjay Shah is also a philanthropist. Perhaps one of his most recognized acts of charity is a charitable event known as Autism Rocks. Sanjay was inspired to start raising money for charity after his own son was diagnosed with Autism aged 4. He got the idea to raise money through concerts when a friend called him and told him he was with a famous musician, Snoop Dogg , and they wanted to pass by his villa. It was from this “miracle” visit that he got the inspiration to raise money for charity through concerts.
