The Power of a Father’s Love

Autism Rocks is a charity that helps raise money to research the disorder. Autism is often hard for people to understand because the person with Autism does not look disabled. Often we think of people with Autism as someone who just has behavioral problems, but there is much more to the disorder. Autism is the fastest-growing developmental disorder in the world.

Sanjay Shah understands autism all too well. He is the president and CEO of Solo Capital. One afternoon while visiting with Snoop Dogg, he decided how he would contribute to Autism research. He would set up concert gigs with famous artists such as Lenny Kravitz to raise money for the research of Autism. Shah had been in the music industry before and Snoop Dogg encouraged him to return to the industry where he could fulfill his dreams for Autism research.

Five years into his business at Solo Capital, Shah had 39 offices and had a net worth of $280 million. He had come to a point in his business where he could sit back and focus more on raising awareness for Autism. He decided to start his efforts in the music industry.

Autism Rocks is very near and dear to Sanjay Shah. In 2011, Shah’s four-year-old son was diagnosed with Autism after seeing the best specialists money could buy. Shah realized how expensive the medical care was for people with Autism, and that so many people could not afford the care they needed. He wanted to help these people in need, so he created Autism Rocks.

Shah’s biggest wish is to see his investments go towards the research of the cause of Autism. Of course, he would love to find a cure, but more importantly, why and how it happens. He wants to find more artists who want to help the cause, and would like to donate a track from their album to help the charity continue to flourish.
