Title of research: Investigating the mechanisms and intervening institutional barriers to the emergence of venture capital in developing countries.
Short description of research: I am studying venture capital evolution processes and the underlying mechanisms and contextual conditions constraining those processes. I am focusing on Pakistan which has been less favorable so far to welcome venture capital. Institutional theory is preferred to investigate the content-context fit issues. The theses uses qualitative research methods, constructivist/critical realist ontology, and interpretivist epistemology to approach the institutional conditions influencing venture capital development.
