May 2011—NextStage Capital is a venture capital company focused on helping technology companies in the mid-Atlantic States to launch and grow their organizations. Their new website, designed and produced by Radar, prominently features NextStage Capital’s portfolio companies right on the homepage. Six portfolio company logos are presented at the top of the screen on entry, and the six logos rotate after a small time delay to reveal an additional six logos. Clicking on any of the logos takes you to the inside Portfolio page, where additional information on each company is presented.
The new site provides NextStage with a modern content management system that makes it easy to update news stories, press releases, or to add additional portfolio companies as they come into the fold. As news items are added, the headlines automatically update on the homepage and on several inside pages, thereby keeping the site current.
