About Us

Founded in Nov 2017 by Mohammed Haseeb and Pradeep Singh, LAFFAZ is a global standard digital magazine 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 empowers startups and entrepreneurs through its brand marketing avenues, and events – helping startup founders reach across LAFFAZ’s readership and community canvas extensively. 


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. LAFFAZ decrypts strenuous information and updates available on the traditional media platform into easily consumable stories graspable to the masses, especially, the young and aspiring entrepreneurs.

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
