This is Derek Miller Speaking on Business. Utah’s financial strength is the result of good management, a diverse economy, and a culture of mentorship. Clarke Capital is one of Utah’s largest consumer-focused investment firms and CEO James Clarke is here to share the essential role of mentoring in their business.


As a serial entrepreneur, I’ve grown companies from millions to billions, but I didn’t do it alone. My mentors made all the difference. They knew what to do because they’d been there before, and there’s no doubt that I stood on their shoulders.

Clarke Capital is a consumer-focused investment firm that actively mentors entrepreneurs who want to scale profitable businesses.

Our founding members have the know-how and first-hand experience to offer operational guidance in addition to capital. And managers of our own capital, we have the flexibility to make decisions that align with the long-term goals of entrepreneurs and other investors.

We seek the best operators, people who work as hard as we do, people who couple sheer grit with determination to get the job done.

We’re committed to helping Utah’s consumer-focused entrepreneurs thrive. If you know one or happen to be one of these entrepreneurs who has a successful business they want to scale the right way, we’d love to meet them.
