This study is situated in Business Model Innovation, an emerging field in management literature. The concept seeks to describe the re-inventive strategies businesses adopt towards maintaining value propositions and competitive advantage. Ability to achieve this is largely dependent on accessibility to requisite resources within the given environment of the business. This is applicable to businesses faced with enhancing their growth potential with significant resource constraints in challenging environments. Small and Medium scale enterprises tend to experience such challenges especially within developing countries. Understanding the essential factors and capabilities which assist them in the business model innovation process creates an avenue for research furtherance. Based on this, the research intends to examine the identified phenomenon through a multiple case study analysis of SME companies in the renewable energy industry within Nigeria, a developing country.
