On resourced-based review (RBV), small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in high-technology industry usually explore competitive advantages through internal special resources. Recent studies on young, high-tech firms have highlighted that in practice these types of businesses also acquire competitive advantages through relationships and the structure involving knowledge blocking.
