Abstract Entrepreneurship research in recent years emphasise the importance of the emerging knowledge in business model and business model innovation that can be considered critical strategic approaches for businesses to disrupt and compete effectively in the currently dynamic and uncertain business environment. However, to date, there still is a high degree of scholarly incongruence in definitions and conceptualisation of these concepts which results in inconsistent empirical findings, conclusions and implications meaningful to scholars and entrepreneurial firms in a larger scale. Thus, this study examines key previous literature in the business model and business model innovation realm and their implications in contributing success to entrepreneurial firms. It attempts to review influential definitions/terminologies and conceptualisations that are agreed and contrary among scholars as well as implications to entrepreneurial firms following the narrative literature review approach. The study focuses particularly on the emerging economy context in which the body of knowledge is substantially fragmented with the aim of reaching more common understanding of these concepts in this particular context. The study then attempts to clarify more congruent understanding of business model and business model innovation while justifying implications to contemporary entrepreneurial firms in emerging economies. The knowledge accrued from this study should offer new insights to both scholars and practitioners, yet its generalisability needs to be further amplified by future studies.
