Sanjay Shah is a British millionaire who knows how to invest and trade for profit. But what he and his wife Usha are planning has nothing to do with their own gain. They are planning “Autism Rocks,” a live concert and charity festival that will help raise money for autism research.
Sanjay Shah is the founder and CEO of Solo Group Holdings, and also the owner of Aesa S.a.r.l., which control Solo Group Holdings. He is also the owner of over three dozen companies throughout London, Dubai, The British Virgin Islands, Luxembourg, the Cayman Islands and Malta. His net worth is estimated at $280 million although he says he is retired.
After many tests and visits to many doctors they received the sad news that their child was autistic. Once they learned more about the disease and met others at the Autism center, Sanjay wanted to help in any way he could.
He started out by buying them a couple new minibuses to transport the children where they needed to go. From there he decided to use his position to see what kind of money he could raise, or get friends and colleagues to donate.
Sanjay spent time doing DJ jobs when he was in college, so he knew a little bit about the music scene. His first idea was for a reggae festival, but he was quickly denied.
Sanjay and Usha are very determined to help others as well as their son, and to help fund the research that may prevent other families from having to deal with autism. They have put one million dollars of their own money toward the festival, and hope it has a profitable outcome.
The festival is a two-night event sure to be full of fun and festivities. Autism Rocks performs private concerts world-wide to help raise money for a very good cause.
