Current Projects

My current project is to develop a theory of fostering media entrepreneurship. Two phases have accomplished. In the first phase (2013) I developed a framework for efficient media markets by extension of Strategic Acquisition theory. In the second phase (2015) I developed the theory of innovation market by extension of previous framework and two other theories. Currently, I am working on final theory development by study of DR as Danish Public Service Broadcast and how it may facilitate user innovations and develop media entrepreneurship to secure its creative and innovation market.
