    Culture Trip is a Global Hyper-Growth Tech Startup operating in travel, media and entertainment. We create stories that reveal what is unique and special about a place, its people and its culture. In-house creative teams work with a global network of more than 300 freelance creators to produce articles, videos, photography, illustration and animation.

    With over 20 million monthly visitors we have access to a huge amount of data and insights, which will enable us to take our product to the next level. Our cross functional teams are made up of Data Scientists, Software Engineers and Data Engineers. We are solving real life, current problems and are utilising Machine/Deep learning techniques alongside Software Development to provide our users with a unique offering.

    From just a dozen people in late 2016, the team has expanded to more than 250. This diverse group of computer engineers and tech, editorial, data and media experts are spread across offices in London, New York City and Tel Aviv. Alumni of companies including Google, Facebook, Expedia, Lonely Planet, Spotify, Bloomberg, Viacom, TripAdvisor, BBC and McLaren have joined recently. A recent Series B funding injection from PPF Group of $80 million has further propelled rapid growth. Monthly unique visitors to the site have gone from 4 million to nearly 20 million, cross-platform social followers have increased from 1 million to 7 million, and app downloads have leapt from 50,000 to 1.5 million. Culture Trip videos have been viewed more than 2 billion times.

    Culture Trip has been named by Forbes as one of the fastest-growing companies to watch.
