On Tuesday, November 12, 2013, Institutional Investor and SumZero, the world’s largest online membership community of buy-side investment professionals, hosted an idea competition at Columbia University Business School’s Uris Hall Auditorium.

Nineteen emerging managers were selected from within the SumZero community on the basis of strong performance and high-quality peer reviews. Each manager gave a three minute pitch on their best idea of stocks to invest in to an audience of analysts and investors who rated their pitch for validity of the thesis, strength of the argument, feasibility of the trade and originality.
