Tell us about your internship.

Culture Trip Ltd. is a global startup operating in travel, media, and entertainment. I presided over market research in support of the company’s expansion into China. I assessed market potential in terms of growth and trends, compiled customer portrait and travel preferences through online surveys, and studied China’s inbound tourism market and millennial travelers in detail to interpret the characteristics of prospective users. In addition, I performed competitive analysis on online content platforms to explore niche market opportunities and analyzed the landscape of multi-channel network agencies in search of potential partnerships.
