The aim of the work is to analyse the relationship between entrepreneurial capital (EC), renewal capital (RC) and trust capital (TC), considered as standalone components of intellectual capital (IC), and firms’ performances. To this end, an empirical research based on a sample of Italian companies was carried out. The survey’s results show that EC, RC and TC have a positive influence on Italian medium-sized and large companies’ performance. Its findings contribute to understand how EC, RC and TC affect the creation of value in organisations and enable these organisations to improve their performance through a better management of knowledge-based resources.
