Sanjay Shah is the CEO of the Solo Group Holdings that controls the Solo Capital Markets.


Autism is Everyone’s Issue

The whole world deals with autism. The main reason the cases of autism are so high right now is because of the lack of awareness being spread. Doctors are not diagnosing children early enough and sometimes they are making mistakes when delivering the child at birth There are a lot of things that can cause autism but the issue is that we do not agree on all of those causes. We are experiencing higher rates of autism than ever before reported.  In a recent interview with Friday magazine Sanjay Shah talks all about why the decision was made to start this foundation.It took international rap superstar to come to his home and explain to him that he was trying to get world class entertainers to do do benefit shows to help funding towards autism research. This really touched Sanjays heart. The 42 year old family man hosted Snoop Dog and his ten man entourage in his Dubai home to talk about the autism research. The fact that a man who has sold over 30 million records id concerted about the situation inspired him to start his own fundraiser. He has a GoFundMe page to help with the fight of autism that we all say way too much everyday. Snoop Dog decided to get people to play the gigs for research because his youngest son was diagnosed with autism a few years ago. Since the idea started they have gotten stars like Lenny Kravitz to perform. Sanjay explains that all of the money goes to ARC which eventually goes to ART for reasearch.
