As a college student Shah studied medicine and eventually gave up his medical pursuits to launch a career in accounting instead. Shah would go on to work in the investment industry for a slew of investment banks like Rabobank, Credit Suisse, Merrill Lynch and Morgan Stanley. As the global financial crisis reached the financial services industry in the United Kingdom, Shah found himself without a job. Rather than look for another position Shah would go on to found the company we know as Solo Capital. According to Global Citizen Magazine Shah would go on to become incredibly wealthy through Solo Capital’s success and would decide to shift his focus from managing his boutique financial service company to pursuing philanthropic initiatives in the area of child development.
Because Shah is virtually retired from Solo Capital he is reportedly now spending his time working on supporting organizations that are committed to enhancing the quality of life for individuals living with autism. Shah was inspired to lend his support to autism-oriented non-profit organizations after learning that his young son was suffering from the disorder. After learning that his son had the disorder Shah looked to an autism-oriented healthcare facility in the United Arab Emirates to provide the developmental therapy his son needed. He ended up needing to finance his son’s healthcare independently as the facility was not able to serve his son due to having an extensive years-long wait list. Shah donated resources to the facility and began looking for ways that he could raise large amounts of money to benefit the cause of autism. Shah had a background in music after working as a disk jockey during his years in university. He decided to leverage his experience as a promoter with his passion for creating a better quality of life for people living with autism. Shah decided to develop an initiative that spoke to both of these interests by launching an organization called Autism Rocks. Shah’s charity Autism Rocks raises money for autism research by organizing concerts whose proceeds go towards researching the developmental disorder. Autism Rocks has raised money for autism by throwing concerts featuring celebrities like Prince, Drake and Lenny Kravitz.
