Abstract: This paper analyses 64 variables related to the intellectual capital of manufacturing and service firms in the Dominican Republic. In addition, the study included 10 control variables related to firms characteristics, and 10 variables related to firms performance, for a total of 84 variables. The main findings show that business performance in manufacturing firms relies mainly on relational capital and depends to a lesser extent on human capital, and that innovative performance depends on a closer relation between human and structural capital. In the case of service firms, both business and innovative performance rely on structural and relational capital, indicating the role of suppliers as a potential source of innovations.
