Leadership X Events began in 2008 as an initiative of Marketplace One, a kingdom oriented private investment firm with partners who believe business is a sacred calling when done in faith, for the glory of God, and the common good. The partners understand the tension inherent to living out their Christian calling in the marketplace.

Past presenters have included Dr. Wayne Grudem, Dr. Timothy Keller, Dr. John Coors, Kurt Warner, Dr. Joe Stowell, Eric Metaxas, STEPHEN MANSFIELD, Toby Kurth, tim chaddick, Riccardo stewart, and Dr. Anthony Bradley.

About The One Institute

As an experimental think tank, our mission is to promote the ideas and encourage the leaders that create gospel-centered ventures for the glory of God and the common good.

We believe that God calls people to serve society with the talents they have been given, and that many are called to exercise their giftedness in the context of the marketplace.

For one reason or another, however, high-capacity Christian marketplace leaders are an underserved demographic. We therefore seek to identify, develop, and partner with key leaders who have the capacity to make a positive impact in society.

The One Institute was established by Marketplace One, a private investment firm in Phoenix that exists to foster an investment ecosystem that produces profitable opportunities for investors and marketplace leaders who share a common vision. The company was founded in 2007 by Bret Edson and Brad Edson, after they sold their long-standing family business, Edson Electric Supply.

Due to growth and demand, the One Institute is now an independent 501(c)(3) that serves marketplace leaders across the United States. Brian Mackay & Bryce Butler provides leadership to the One Institute.
