Autism Rocks Appoints New Members In Its Board

Autism Rocks is an international organization that was started by popular British millionaire Sanjay Shah. The company was started several years ago, and it is currently based in the United Kingdom, London. The main aim of starting the organization was to create awareness about autism diseases. The organization also wanted to help fund research about the condition, and this way, people and the society at large will understand who is at risk of getting the condition, how to detect the condition early enough and also help the affected groups to access the right centers where they can get help fast.

Recently, the company has grown so large, and the management has decided to add more members in the board so that they can meet the growing demand of the company. According to Sanjay Shah, the founder of the company, the organization is moving to new parts of the globe, and more personnel are required in the daily management of the company. The new people who will join the board are Pete Best and Will Best.

The two new members are brothers, and they are having been in close contact with Sanjay for some years now. They started their friendship when they were still in the university, and they understand each other very well. Shah believes that his two friends are the right people for the growing institution.

Autism Rocks is a well-known invitation-only live concert and also a charity event that raises awareness and donations for autism research. This means that the two new members will be involved in the musical events, funds, and the management of the donation received.

Pete Best is a close friend to Shah, and he says that he knows him very well. He has been in the finance industry for over 21 years, and he has the required experience to handle the finance activities in the charitable organization.

Shah is also the founder of Solo Capital, a boutique investment company that is found in London and Dubai. He started the company after leaving formal employment several years ago. The company has done very well, making him one of the richest people in London.

Sanjay Shah and Solo Capital Partners take on cancer with acquisition of Radon Solutions.

Lung cancer

And keeping you and your family or your business safer from one of its major causes, radon gas.

Here at Radon Solutions we’re happy to be working with Sunjay Shah and Solo Capital Partners in Dubai. The acquisition expands his interest in another, often-but-not-exclusively-juvenile-malady, Autism, and extends it to reducing radon-induced lung cancer.
We appreciate the additional ability we will now have to serve our customers.
Count on Radon Solutions for professional treatment, right from your first call, your first meeting with a knowledgeable Radon Solutions representative, your radon test, and right through the RadonAway installation and final startup.
Your Radon Solutions representative will help you understand the danger of airborne radon gas in your home or business. He’ll explain the way radon behaves in the lungs and why it is a major source of cancer, causing an estimated 20,000 deaths in the US annually.
He’ll (or she’ll – it’s not strictly a man’s world) explain not only why radon is deadly but also why it is stealthy and often misunderstood.
You’ll also learn why protecting yourself, your family and your employees has a simple solution.

Count on Radon Solutions to keep radon level low in your living or working space.

We know you’re aware of lung cancer … a friend, a fellow-employee or even a family member might be suffering from it. And, like most cancers, it’s not curable … and is one of the hardest cancers to even treat.
Radon Solutions branches are located primarily in areas where the typical air concentration of radon is at least 2 pCi/L (the measure of radon concentration) and in many of our areas the level of radon in the air is already “high” (4 pCi/L or more). Most of the time that’s a level people can live with but we humans sometimes interfere when we build our homes and buildings on the surface and cut down the radon’s ability to escape into the air.
Here’s why radon is a sneaky threat. It doesn’t stay in its pure form but when it spends its low radioactivity it “decays” (that nuclear term again) and, one molecule at a time, actually changes to another material. And that’s where it becomes dangerous.
While the radon we have breathed is in the lung, some individual atoms of radon will “decay” further, becoming a whole different kind of atom. In this form it is now a solid and will not leave with the exhaled breath and, even worse, it reacts with and joins the nearby lung tissue.
Here it stays, continuing to decay. With each step of decay it bombards nearby lung tissue with its nuclear radiation which stimulates it to grow rapidly … that’s cancer!

Here’s when you should worry about radon:
Because radon is heavier than air, often it is trapped underground within solid rock, and is not an everyday danger. It may eventually find its way to the surface and join the atmosphere where, most of the time, it is not a serious problem.
But when a building foundation is leveled or, worse, a basement is excavated by digging into the underlying rock, trapped radon is released, and, over time radon continues to be released from the rock below as it slowly but steadily migrates to the surface and becomes part of the atmosphere in your home or building.

And RadonSolutions can help

Autism Rock on Forefront Towards Creating Autism Awareness.

Autism Rock is a foundation that began so as to gain insight on autism. It is run and owned by Sanjay Shah who is the largest contributor towards the charity. His dedication towards the foundation began when he had to treat and cater for his kid who was suffering from autism at the age of 4 years. All the contributions that are made to the foundation are then presented to the Autism Research Center that is based in Cambridge where Sanjay runs the place. It runs scientific studies on the mental disorder. Recent news from the center indicates that through magnetic resonance imaging, they can tell the disease affected a different part of the brain depending on the sex of the person. These results are the latest findings in the world of autism research.
Sanjay Shah was a medical student before joining accountants in the financial markets and investments. One of his greatest achievement was when he received a £19-million-pound bonus from the Capula Investment. He opted to open his brokerage firm and help clients by himself. Solo Capital was born after his decision and it is a financial service provider entity whose headquarters are in London. It is also licensed to operate within the United Kingdom. Sanjay also owns other companies located in places like Malta, British Virgin Islands, and the Cayman Islands.
His charity Autism Rock foundation raises money by organizing gigs around the world creating awareness of autism. Some of the artists who have managed to attend the shows include Kravitz, Prince and Snoop Dogg. Sanjay used to make contributions to families in India with autism affected kids. The costs he incurred when treating Nikhil, his son made him see the need for a charity organization that will enable every child with the disorder to get special treatment till they can fend for themselves. He uses his skill set as a Dj to organize functions a trait that he picked up when on campus.

Sanjay Shah: Making A Difference One Concert At A Time

Sanjay Shah has seen success throughout his life in the financial world. After attending King’s College in London, Shah went on to work for numerous successful institutions, such as Morgan Stanley, Rabobank and Credit Suisse. Over a 20 year period, Shah worked as a highly regarded banker. Finally, in 2008 he found himself without a job. He started his own company, an investment management, principal trading and brokerage firm. He called it Solo Capital.

Solo Capital quickly expanded to two offices with over 100 employees in Dubai and London. The firm began to run itself and no longer needed his minute by minute attention. Shah needed to find another project to get behind. And he decided on autism. Shah’s son had been diagnosed with autism several years prior and he had actively given to the Autism Research Trust, which supports the Autism Research Center. In order to support autism research, Shah took up an old hobby, concert promotion.

The idea was born after Sanjay Shah received a surprise visit from Snoop Dogg at his Dubai home. Shah had loved promoting concerts during his college days so he called a local promotions company in Dubai and got them to agree to partner with him on a local event so that he could gain experience. This event was more of a trial run and did not include the charity aspect. They rounded up musicians like Joss Stone, Elvis Costello, Aloe Blacc and Xavier Rudd and nearly broke even with about 3,000 people in attendance.

The CEO of Done Events called Shah while they were in the middle of planning the event and mentioned that Prince would be willing to do a private event soon. So Shah took this opportunity to tie in the Charity, Autism Rocks. He got Prince to agree to do a private gig in London and they raised just over 3 million dollars.

Autism Rocks is only seeing more and more success in raising money for autism and they plan on continuing this success.

Autism Rocks out Worldwide

After his son was diagnosed with autism, successful businessman and CEO Sanjay Shah founded Autism Rocks to help fund research by the Autism Research Centre. In 2011 after taking his youngest son to the doctor complaining of stomach problems, Sanjay Shah was informed that as well as a food allergy his son shows signs of autism.

Autism is a developmental disorder, impairing social interactions and typical communication with others. It can also be characterized by repetitive or obsessive behaviors. Some forms of autism is said to affect over three million individuals across the world and one in 68 children in the United States are on the autism spectrum according to studies by the CDC. When one of these three million individuals happened to be Sanjay’s son, the family quickly learned how much it costs to care for someone with autism and that research was still underfunded.

In an afternoon tea chat with Snoop Dogg and using his long list of contacts including event planners, musicians, and interested parties; Sanjay founded Autism Rocks. Its first event was an invite only concert in London, headlined by Prince. Since its resounding success, Autism Rocks has funded over 15 research projects including the Autism Research Centre at Cambridge University.

Shah has contributed to helping children in India but focuses his attention on the research into better diagnostic knowledge and studies into specific implementations for building social skills. Donations from Shah, his family, and his trusts have provided transportation for clients of the Dubai Autism Centre and the discovery that autism affects different parts of the brain depending on the sex of the individual.

The discovery made by the ARC concluded that if certain identifiers are present in males, we should not assume that it would also affect a female in the same way. This shows that there is more diversity on the autism spectrum than previously thought, so behaviors may not be misdiagnosed as ADHD or other syndromes and carers can adjust and treat rather than prescribe drugs.

Right now Autism Rocks is a private event, raising awareness for people living with autism across the world but you can still donate to help the cause here: Donate to Autism Rocks
