Stayzilla was founded with a laser-sharp vision to become India's largest online marketplace for “Stays”. Going beyond the realm of just hotels, we serve a well-balanced diet comprising of all manner of “Stay” options to our customers including lodges, homestays, guesthouses, etc.
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.
A software engineer by qualification, Rupal Surana worked in IT for a few months before stepping into the decision-making shoes at Stayzilla as the COO. She handles the day-to-day operations like customer service and payment processing. The founding years of our company saw her approach hotels across the country along with her team to persuade them to promote their property through Stayzilla which is a great achievement considering our low profile status during those initial years.
