NextStage Capital, L.P. is an early stage venture capital fund focused on investing in undiscovered Mid-Atlantic technology companies run by talented, proven entrepreneurs.
With an emphasis on technology software, hardware and services, our goal is to find talented entrepreneurs with a compelling and validated technology offering and help them build company value.
Our team draws on years of experience as entrepreneurs and venture capitalists. The partners have invested over $175M of early stage capital and helped build some of the most lucrative venture-backed companies in the area. Having participated in many successful exits, as well as having worked with companies through difficult situations, the partners offer a comprehensive perspective and experience to entrepreneurs.
NextStage Capital's involvement doesn't end with providing capital and strategic advice. Often the difference between failure and success comes down to one or two key hires and the timing of those hires is critical. We invest in founders for the long term and we look to surround those founders with the best people at the right time. NextStage Capital integrates recruiting into the venture model because our experience has shown that having the right people at the right time is the single most important factor of success.
