So far, I always thought that knowledge-based companies and R&D companies were the same. But recently our TA mentioned that they are different, I've searched a lot to find the differences between them but the more I searched the less I found.

I would really appreciate if someone told me the difference between these two kind of companies.

A knowledge-based company sells products or services that are primarily knowledge-based. This doesn't have to be new knowledge - it can be existing knowledge.

An R&D company earns its way by developing new knowledge.
