Sanjay Shah Rocks Research for Autism and Discusses Business and Solo Capital

Entrepreneur and philanthropist Sanjay Shah was recently in the spotlight talking to Entrepreneurial Podcast Network’s Enterprise Radio in an interview.

Sanjay and host Eric Dye discussed Solo Capital, a global boutique offering financial services which Shah founded in London in around 2009, and incorporated in 2011. With Solo Capital and his other businesses solidly in place, Sanjay set his sights on Autism Rocks. In 2011, Sanjay’s youngest son Nikhil was diagnosed with autism. Shah felt that he wanted to do something that would help his family, and also create awareness of autism and fund new research and treatments. He also had a fondness for music, and founding Autism Rocks in 2014 allowed these factors to come together as a live music festival. Performances, which have included in the festival’s short history, among others; Drake, Lenny Kravitz, and Michael Buble, have raised money to go toward research, and also raised the general population’s consciousness of the condition, which is diagnosed in 1 of every 68 children annually. This year’s Autism Rocks will feature performances from Tyga, Flo-Rida, Mark Ronson, and others, and will take place one night in Dubai, and two nights in London. More information about Autism Rocks can be found at:

Prior to leading Solo Capital Markets to success; he had been studying medicine, but did a 360 degree turn and instead went into finance. Specifically; Shah became an accountant and worked for companies such as Merrill Lynch and Morgan Stanley. The world financial crisis continued into 2009 and at this point Sanjay Shah stepped out on his own and Solo Capital was founded.

Shah has some valuable tips for successful entrepreneurship; advising those who are starting new businesses not to be afraid to take on some help to manage the workload and not to underestimate the capital that will be necessary to get off the ground. He knows a good deal about this first hand; as CEO of Solo Capital building a highly successful firm in just a few short years after launching. He is still acting CEO of Solo Capital Markets but as of 2016 has been able to consider himself retired.

Enduring the Long Journey to Freedom: Yeonmi Park

Yeonmi Park recently discussed her brave journey as a North Korea defector. Freedom to her was an unbelievable concept to her. She didn’t know what the word meant. Food was a more desired commodity than being free.
This brave young lady started the journey in 2007 with her family. In the dead of night, she and her mother crossed the frozen river to get into China. They had no idea where to go to next. The journey took her years to cross the China and the harrowing deserts, and she finally reached South Korea by plane. Unfortunately, her father died due to untreated cancer during the long journey.

North Korea has even tried to start a media campaign slamming the young lady and her family, calling them “puppets.” Parks knows this can be farther from the truth. She was abused, sexually assault, and afraid most of the journey. These details are minimized to help maintain her dignity. She has changed details to protect her family under the dictatorship. Being a defector can have deadly consequences for the person and their family.

She represents the population of refugees who have risked their lives to get away from the oppression of North Korea. While North Korea tries to spin the story in such a way that the defectors are wrong, many know the true story of life behind the curtain of oppression. They are running from the world’s most secretive nation, making it impossible to verify their stories.
Link to original: Your text to link…

Stories about human rights abuses, torture, and suffering in North Korea are not new. The inhuman behavior of the North Korean government has been well-documented for years. Park’s story reinforces some of the facts that have been reported by others. The Park story is an account of her 2007 escape. She explains how the men she believed would take her, and her mother to freedom abused them. Not all details about that trip are written exactly as they happened according to Park. She was young, and some of the details of her journey were hard to express in a foreign language. But she did the best she could to write a factual account of her life before she knew what freedom really was. Before that journey freedom was eating a decent meal.

The Revolutionary Teacher Alexei Beltyukov

When one refers to Alexei Beltyukov as a teacher, they may get the public confused, particularly in Russia where he is more of a philanthropist and entrepreneur. However, Alexei fits the description of a teacher, and a great one by all standards.

Alexei has dedicated his entrepreneurial career to the mentorship of the younger generation of investors. We must agree that starting and running a business is a sensitive practice, and one needs to equip themselves with the management skills. Mr. Beltyukov has assisted thousands of Russians to identify and incubate their ideas of activities. He even went a step further by supporting his students to access startup capital through his flagship firm Endemic Capital.

The Russian government is keen on integrating modern technology and innovation in its economy. As a result, it has been nurturing tech startups and innovators in the country through research and financial grants. This initiative has been supported by a host of organizations including Skolkovo Foundation, a philanthropic. Alexei Beltyukov happens to be one of the executive leaders at the foundation, and all the firm’s beneficiaries know him as their teacher.

Alexei’s experience and success in business allow him the freedom and appeal to mentor others. Before Endemic Capital, he founded A-ventures, a venture capitalist movement that injects capital in struggling businesses across Russia. A-ventures has also facilitated the expansion of numerous firms in Russia. Alexei also exhibits a thirst for knowledge and performance. He quit medical practice to pursue his business motives, a gamble that has paid off handsomely.

A proud alumni of the INSEAD Business School, Alexei’s MBA has served him exceptionally well. While at the institution, he was touched by the plight of underprivileged students who struggled to complete their studies. Again, he rallied the alumni in raising funds to sponsor some students during their course work. By now, one can clearly see the charitable side of Mr. Beltyukov and his sense of responsibility to others.

However, is the enterprise that best defines Alexei Beltyukov’s teaching characteristics. He realized students and teachers in Russia had problems in the learning of mathematics. The education system needed a problem-solving approach to enhance the understanding of such subjects. Eventually, he came up with Solvy, a system that facilitates interaction between students and teachers in problem solving.

Solvy also monitors the progress of every student hence allowing teachers to pay attention to every student at their disposal. The program has achieved massive success since inauguration in 2014.  Be sure to follow Alexei on Facebook for more information.

The Success of QNet

I have come interacted with many people that are involved in an online business networking known as QNET. There is a lot of positive hype about this company and its founders who are striving to make the world a better place. I was impressed to note that it values the quality of products that it transmits to the populous. I know it is one of the few companies that are actually concerned about what people consume. It recognizes its moral responsibility to the world and would not compromise its obligations towards animals and people. It is refreshing to note that the company sponsors a vegetarian form of livelihood. While many people lack to see the business point of selling specific products Qnet is comfortable with its mode of operation and the impact that is being felt worldwide. It did not come as a surprise therefore when I learnt that it was the largest online business in Asia.

Naturally I am a very inquisitive person and wanted to find out what made this company the best at what it did. I discovered that the company was founded in 2000 by a group of close knit friends who wanted to have a piece of the MLM business. I found that Qnet employs thousands of people who work in their own time marketing and selling products distributed by Qnet. It gives people the opportunity to better their income while at the same time working independently. The advantage of selling and using their products is that one is able to make crazy profits since the merchandise is offered at a subsidized rate. Many people have made fortunes while working with Qnet. I know for a fact that they have one of the best customer relationship service and personnel responding immediately to quarries and enquiries.

I observed that the company has great emphasis on physical and nutritional care. Qnet is alive to the realities of the 21st century and the challenges that are facing people. In order to avoid scammers Qnet rigorously tests its products and ascertains its origins. Gaining consumer confidence is one of the best advertisement models. I have come across tons of people who have nothing but praise for the company. While other companies are spending millions of dollars in advertisements Qnet is silently promoting good business practices and carrying out its moral obligations. I would not hesitate to buy and promote Qnet products my guess is that millions of people also support my thinking.

Housing Privatization Denied Venezuelan People

The Venezuelan people have been refused by the court system to own the deeds to the homes in which they live. Monday, May 9th the Venezuelan parliament denied the housing bill that would have given the citizenry who are living in the public housing sector the right to sell their homes.
People who are living in public housing currently have the right to remain in the home for their lifetime, but cannot sell the property. Parliament has declared that passing this bill would cause rampant selling of property which could threaten the public housing initiative. This housing bill was found by Danilo Diaz Granados to be in direct opposition to Venezuelas’ Magna Carta, which declares that the state must provide housing for the state’s population, including those people in need.

Opposing parties in this ruling have been verbally lashing out stating that the right to own property is not a privilege but a constitutional right. This housing bill has seen much opposition from the residents of public housing and from urban housing movements. According to Danilo Diaz, 62% of the citizenry who live in public housing were opposed to the passing of this bill.
