The Founder Of Autism Rocks And Solo Capital Is Sanjay Shah

Sanjay Shah was recently featured in an interview with the host being Eric Dyer for a podcast. This podcast is known as Entrepreneurial Podcast Network’s Enterprise Radio. The podcast provides its listeners with business advice, motivation, inspiration, information as well as event coverage. The interview shed light on Sanjay Shah’s business background and his founding of the brokerage firm known as Solo Capital. This brokerage firm is based out of London, England. Sanjay Shah also has a number of other business spread throughout Malta, Dubai, the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands and Luxembourg. Sanjay Shah started out his college years studying medicine but soon realized that this was not the career path for him. He soon switched over to a business degree in accounting. This was his passion and soon after leaving college worked for major companies like Credit Suisse, Merrill Lynch and Stanley Morgan. In 2009 when the financial crisis hit Europe, Sanjay Shah was made redundant and found it difficult to find a new job. As the future seemed difficult he decided to start his own company in the very sector that he had worked in. This was the humble beginning of Solo Capital which is also known as Solo Capital UK or Solo Capital Limited. The brokerage firm focuses its attention on professional sports investments, proprietary trading as well as consulting. In January 2016, Sanjay Shah is speculated to have a net worth of 280 million dollars. He is now retired and focuses most of his attention on his charity organization Autism Rocks. This charity was founded in 2014 after his son was diagnosed with the neurological disorder. The charity raises funds for the research of the disorder as well as creating awareness. All this is done through concerts which feature prominent artists. The first concert featured the artist Prince and many more followed including Drake, Michael Bublè and Lenny Kravitz.

Beneful Revisted, Showcases Great Quality of Food.

Beneful is one of the most popular and high selling dry dog food brands in Wal-Mart and they have been that way for over a decade now. Beneful made their way to market back in 2001 and since then the company has quickly established themselves as one of the few reliable and reputable dog food companies around. Over the past several years consumers of dog food have begun to get more and more focused on feeding their animals the best possible foods available and this, shockingly, has caused a bit of noise around the Beneful brand — eventually leading to a class action lawsuit. While the case is still technically pending we can show how misinformation and an ill informed consumer base has gotten it wrong about Beneful.
For starters, Beneful paved the way for the usage of organic and real meat products in their dog foods — something that has since become standard in the industry of ‘like owner, like pet’ products. As more and more customers are carefully looking over their pet food ingredients you will start to see some more scrutiny. Propylene glycol is one of the ingredients found in many of Beneful’s dry dog foods and it is an FDA approved, completely safe ingredient. However, many people on Facebook confuse propylene glycol with ethylene glycol, an ingredient that is commonly found in anti freeze.

Despite the public class action suit there have been numerous scientific studies done on Beneful’s products and not a single one has ever found anything wrong or unhealthy about the product. Since the class action lawsuit was first publicized more than one third of all people pressing charges have withdrawn those charges. Continued studies and publicized materials have made it very clear that there is no basis in reality for any of the presumptions. We expect to see more and more people withdraw from the case as continued evidence piles up in favor of Beneful.com and their brand of dog food.
