This study aims to explore, the mediating effect of intellectual capital (IC) on the relationship between innovation, corporate governance (CG), and firm performance specifically within the SME sector in Pakistan. Data was collected through questionnaires through random sampling. PLS-SAM is used for data analysis. CG and innovation have positive relations with firm performance. Intellectual capital also indicates the relation between CG and firm performance.
