Founded in London in 2011 by former academic psychiatrist Dr Kris Naudts, our content currently reaches over 11 million site visitors and 200 million social media users every month.
Our vision is to bring the world to everyone. This is how we’re doing just that.
A growing, global community of 71 million in 2017. Over 1 billion video views.
At the end of 2016, Forbes listed Culture Trip as one of the five fastest-growing business to watch in the coming year. They weren’t wrong. In the past 12 months, our monthly site visitors have increased 500% and our Facebook following has expanded 1,000% to 3.8 million.
Our total following now exceeds 4.4 million across all our social channels, where our videos have been hugely successful. Within a year of the first clip being posted, they had been viewed more than 1 billion times.
We relaunched the Culture Trip app in June 2017 and downloads surpassed 550,000 in November.
Offices in 3 global cities. Over 225 hub contributors around the world.
Our offices in London, New York City and Tel Aviv are home, during the week at least, to 135 full-time members of staff. The team is today 10 times the size it was in mid-2016.
Top talent from Google, Facebook, BuzzFeed, Condé Nast, The Guardian and ITV have already joined us and we are gearing up for a major recruitment drive across our engineering, editorial, social, commercial and marketing teams to match our explosive growth.
We also have a global network of local content creators. This community of freelance contributors, including writers, videographers, photographers, illustrators and animators, cover over 300 locations on seven continents.
An expanding range of creative formats. Over 54,000 inspiring articles.
More than 3,000 new pieces of original content appear on our site and app every month, many of which are evergreen. Our written content, which includes features, listicles, news articles, interviews and quizzes, is joined by a similar amount of visual-creative material: videos, photographs, illustrations and animations.
We cover every lifestyle genre, with choice cuts appearing on our social channels, such as our art-focussed Facebook page, Eyecatcher, on our digest-style Medium publication, The Omnivore, and in our newsletters.
Our next steps will include AR and VR content and we also have plans for original long-form video and TV content.
