For the past ten years, Shah has sponsored children in India through Plan International. By then he did not have a specific charity that he focused on and only sent money every month.

When Shah left his job in 1999, he had no prospects of getting any job at the time due to the economic crisis of that year. It was then that Shah decided to take a gamble and started his brokerage business. Being a broker was a good way to earn without limiting his prospects. The company that he created was Solo Capital, and he started it in 2009 with a couple of graduates.

The company has now a net worth of $280 million with offices in London and Dubai. Being the boss of the business has made it possible for Shah to focus on philanthropy and new business ideas.

In 2012, Shah’s son developed a complication and had to be taken to the hospital. He and his wife Usha took their son to doctors in Dubai. Nikhil had a problem of food intolerance that was later found to be Autistic.

Shah was able however to pay for his son’s treatment but noted how expensive it was. It was through the experience with his son that he decided to help needy families who had the same problem. He approached Dubai Autism Centre to see how he would assist them.

Shah has partnered with many people including friends and musicians to raise money for autism. Indeed, he has helped many families with the poor background and his contributions are unmeasurable.
