Under the background of knowledge economy globalization, technology innovation strategy will be the only way which can help
SMEs to seek for sustainable development in the long term. However, the outbreak of the financial crisis has brought a tremendous

economic situation on SMEs development; secondly, reviews relevant literature of SMEs' technology innovation strategy; thirdly,

regulations are considered as the main disadvantages, while industry restructuring and upgrading, government support,
organization structure, transfer cost are considered as the main advantages; finally, it's considered that in the new period, SMEs
should adhere to the dynamic combination of strategic development model which focuses on cooperative innovation and
