This alliance is a perfect match. We are delighted to partner with What’s Trending and spearhead the first international digital format partnership in the space,” said Culture Machine CEO Sameer Pitalwalla.

We are confident of our capabilities to provide the best platform to What’s Trending in India and make the brand grow in the region.”
