Abstract

Professor Wright’s body of research on Venture Capital (VC) has advanced the field and has facilitated recent research on new sources of financing for start-ups such as crowdfunding and blockchain. In this article, inspired by Professor Wright’s pursuit in encouraging new directions in research, we first demonstrate, with an illustrative study on VC learning, that mixed methods research, which combines quantitative and qualitative data, can be helpful in VC research. We also present some possible mixed methods directions for future research. We conclude with a short and critical discussion on both methods and research practices. In doing so, we hope to stimulate scholars’ interest in these underutilised methods.
