NEW YORK, May 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Gerson Lehrman Group, Inc. (GLG), the world's largest membership network for one-on-one professional learning today announced its sponsorship of the Sohn Investment Idea Contest. The competition will take place in conjunction with the 19th Annual Sohn Investment Conference on May 5, 2014 in New York City, produced in partnership with Bloomberg LINK. The contest seeks to identify the most timely and actionable investment idea to be featured at the conference.

"We're proud to partner with the Sohn Conference Foundation on this learning opportunity and in the fight against pediatric cancer."
