In search of the “Best Investment Idea,” the Ira Sohn Foundation looks to WizeHive to organize its applicants with their online Contest Management Software. The conference supports the research for pediatric cancer, as well as patient care, raising over $20 million since its inception 16 years ago.

"Organizations like the Ira Sohn Foundation are busy and we are happy to offer a smarter, faster and more affordable solution to make their job a bit easier," says CEO of WizeHive, Mike Levinson.

The 16th Ira Sohn Investment Conference is in search for the Best Investment Idea, a contest which seeks to identify a great investment idea to help benefit children with cancer. The conference brings together the most successful Wall Street investors, portfolio managers and asset allocators to discuss their best investment ideas. All funds raised from the conference go to the support, treatment and cure of pediatric cancer and other childhood diseases. The event has raised more than $20 million to date and continues to grow.

This year, entrants are being asked to submit their applications online with WizeHive’s Online Contest Software. WizeHive was able to create a custom application portal where applicants can save their submissions as drafts and upload when completed. Submitted applications will then be made available to judges through a private judging portal. The private judging portal provides easy manageability of its applicants and creates a shorter decision making process. WizeHive has helped various non-profits and foundations not only with their Online Contest Software, but also with their Online Scholarship Management Software and Online Grant Management Software.

"Our goal is to simplify the application process whether its for a contest, a scholarship or a grant," said CEO of WizeHive, Mike Levinson. "Organizations like the Ira Sohn Foundation are busy and we are happy to offer a smarter, faster and more affordable solution to make their job a bit easier."

Submissions are due by 5pm EST on Friday, May 20, 2011. The winner will present the winning idea in a ten-minute presentation at the prestigious Ira Sohn Conference on Wednesday, May 25, 2011 at the Rose Theater, 5th Floor Frederick P. Rose Hall, Home of Jazz at Lincoln Center, and Broadway at 60th Street in New York City.
