The Culture Trip is a fast-growing media site that just raised $80 million in its Series B funding round from a Dutch venture firm.
The company’s CEO says that the Culture Trip’s success lies in its team of freelancers and its flexible content formatting.
A year and a half ago, media startup Culture Trip had a small online following and 12 employees.
Now, the site rakes in close to 15 million monthly unique visitors, and its 200 in-house employees are based across three continents. In addition to the company’s full time staff, the site relies on 300 freelance contributors to largely write articles about the best food, sights, and shopping in their local neighborhoods.
