The Sohn Foundation Investment Idea Contest is an opportunity for any eligible participant to submit an investment idea for a marketable security (long or short) on a company with a market cap above $1 billion. The winner will have an opportunity to present his or her idea to more than 400 attendees alongside some of the world’s top investors at the 6th annual Sohn London Investment Conference taking place on November 30th at the London Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square. Finalists and semi-finalists will each be offered 2 free tickets to attend the event.
Contest participants will have their submissions reviewed by globally recognized investors. Previous NYC winner, Dylan Adelman, an undergraduate student at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, pitched a long bet on eBay, with the thesis that it is highly undervalued largely driven by a misunderstood relationship with PayPal. His thesis was debated post Conference on CNBC as a guest of Jim Cramer.
