Shah founded the charity after his son, Nikhil was diagnosed with the disorder in 2011.
When starting Autism Rocks, Shah says he combined his love of family and music with his entrepreneurial spirit to help fund research for the neurological disorder and raise awareness of it. In April 2016, he will host this year’s concert which will feature performers such as Flo Rida and Tyga. Sanjay Shah has helped open many doors in better understanding autism than ever before thanks to the funds raised from his organization.
Before Founding Autism Rocks, He founded his brokerage firm, Solo Capital in London. His experience with his business helped aid him in his interview where he gave his personal advice on how to own and run a successful business.
