Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference abstract for conferenceResearchpeer-review


This presentation is about a case study being done on networked innovation that is taking place within the scene of free guided tours in Copenhagen. Data has been collected on interactions between actors within the network of peers. In this way, both the own organisation and the actual market is being continually developed. ICT plays a key role, just as well as the relationships between the individual actors. It has been shown that close relationships building on friendship and trust are beneficial for the process of innovation. The fast growth of the sector of free guided tours however poses a number of difficulties, and it is not easy to stick to an organizational model based on friendship in times when business is growing at fast rates.
