Sohn Investment Idea Contest

The Sohn Investment Idea Contest seeks to identify the most timely and actionable investment idea to be featured at the Sohn Investment Conference. A distinguished group of judges – chaired by investor Joel Greenblatt and including celebrated investors Bill Ackman, David Einhorn, Seth Klarman, and Michael Price – will select the winning investment idea based on the judges’ determination of the most compelling idea with a 12-month horizon.

The winner presents the idea in a ten-minute presentation in front of approximately 3,000 people at the prestigious Sohn Investment Conference.
