Sanjay Shah was born on September 1970. His family used to live in Kenya, but they moved to Central London in the 1960’s. This is where Sanjay Shah grew up. Most people believe that Sanjay Shah has been a great success in the business world because he attended business school but this is contrary to common assumptions. Sanjay Shah never attended business school. As a matter of fact, Sanjay Shah attended King’s College where he studied medicine. However, deep down inside he knew that he did not want to become a doctor. He wanted to work in the financial world. After completing his studies, Sanjay Shah worked as an accountant for a number of banks including a Dutch Bank known as Rabobank, Merrill Lynch and Credit Suisse. However, in 2009 the financial sector was hit by a crisis that saw many banks lay off their workers. Sanjay Shah is among those employees who had been laid off by the banks as his position had become redundant. Sanjay Shah realized that it would be superfluous for him to seek employment in the already volatile job market. This was the push he needed to build something great.
Solo Capital was founded in a small rented office in London in the year 2011. With the help of a couple of graduates, Sanjay Shah grew the company and within five years it was estimated to be about $280 million. As we speak today, the company has expanded into Dubai, and the management sees it expanding into other countries in future. Sanjay Shah also owns about 30 other companies spread out across the globe. Most of these businesses are in London, Dubai, Malta, The Cayman Islands, The British Virgin Islands and Luxembourg.
Sanjay Shah is not only a renowned astute businessman, but he is also a philanthropist. In 2011, Sanjay Shah founded Autism Rocks which is a non-profit organization that creates awareness on autism. He established this foundation after his youngest son, Nikhil, was diagnosed with the neurodevelopmental disorder. Autism Rocks raises awareness and funds through holding concerts. The whole idea behind Autism Rocks was birthed when one day Sanjay Shah was having a cup of tea with Snoop Dogg.

Since the establishment of Autism Rocks, many great musicians have been involved with the project including Drake, Lenny Kravitz, Snoop Dogg and other famous DJs.
