In this paper, we begin with a review of the venture capital (VC) literature. We then briefly present mixed methods research, which combines quantitative and qualitative data and exploratory and confirmatory analysis in one study, and an illustrative study on VC learning. We then suggest mixed methods-related directions for future VC research, addressing gaps in the relational, learning, and related aspects under research stream, and presenting a cross-disciplinary mixed methods-related approach. Lastly, we provide a short critical discussion on both methods and research practices. In doing so, we hope to stimulate entrepreneurship scholars’ interest in these underutilized methods.
