ABOUT THE SOHN CONFERENCE FOUNDATION
Since 1995, The Sohn Conference has pooled together the brightest finance professionals in the industry in which investors donate their time and present their ‘best investment ideas’. The Sohn Conference Foundation honors the memory of Ira Sohn, a talented Wall Street professional whose life was cut short when he passed away from cancer at the age of 29. Ira’s friends and family founded The Sohn Conference Foundation in New York City. Since then, investment leaders from across the globe have been inspired to launch partner Sohn Conferences and unite the financial community to support several charitable causes. The Sohn San Francisco Investment Conference is produced by the Excellence in Investing in Children’s Causes Foundation (EICC), an independent 501C3 based in San Francisco.
About Prometheus Alts
Prometheus was founded by hedge fund professionals seeking to modernize their archaic industry, and share insights gained over their years of analysis and managing alternative funds. Understanding that these types of long-term investments depend on building relationships, CEO Michael Wang coupled the idea of a social network with an alt funds marketplace. Though ancient laws restrict the opportunity to invest in these funds to accredited investors, the social network opens up the knowledge base to everyone… until the time comes when we can modernize the laws and create open access to some of the world’s best investments for everyone.
