About us

Founded in Nov 2017 by Mohammed Haseeb and Pradeep Singh, LAFFAZ is your digital tabloid that aims to bring the best of the MENA (Middle East & North Africa) and Indian startup ecosystem; through startup news, stories, government policies, industry updates and content-rich, data-backed features. LAFFAZ also decrypts strenuous information and updates available on the traditional media platform into easily consumable stories graspable to the masses.

The word ‘Laffaz’ has its roots from the Urdu language, synonymous to ‘Outspoken’ or ‘Boaster’, so is the purpose of LAFFAZ Media – boasting noteworthy news and startup stories of MENA (Middle East & North Africa) and India. We also lay stress over stories that connect MENA and India. Why? Because India and the Middle East have a long history of trade partnership that comes $135+ billion as of 2017-18. And since UAE is one of the top destinations for startup funding, and India being the third-largest startup ecosystem after the US and UK, thus attracting investments from UAE and other GCC regions. That’s where our content acts as a synergy between startups in India and the Middle East geographies.

Though we primarily publish about Startups, we also care about a few other important topics followed by the majority of the masses including the Entertainment industry and Books.

“We not only share news and numbers, we aim to create complete experiences to educate and inspire the entrepreneurs, startup founders and the aspiring ones”

Mohammed Haseeb, CEO & Co-founder, LAFFAZ Media
