  • Yogendra Vasupal

    Founder, Investor relations and Overseer

    Stayzilla is the brainchild of Yogendra Vasupal. Yogi, as he is referred to, dropped out of engineering to start a career at the age of 19 by undertaking freelancing projects to develop web-based applications and e-commerce portals. As his tryst with e-commerce grew deeper, he developed a vision to launch an e-commerce portal of his own. That vision grew into the inception of an online portal for hotel accommodations anywhere in India known as Stayzilla.
