    Icarus Investments, Inc. is a private equity firm founded in 1997 to be the investor partner for executives building leading companies in the Southwest. The industries that the firm considers desirable may be niche industries overlooked by others, or industries that are out-of-favor due to prior problems that have been resolved. Icarus avoids investing in 'hot' sectors. Icarus Investments is owned and operated by the Ruff family. The fund seeks to identify specialized companies that have developed a niche in certain sectors, especially high technology. After identifying talented management teams in high growth sectors of the market, the fund's philosophy is to establish long term strategic investment relationships.
