We’re cracking open a new year of digital adventures with Yosha Gupta, Founder & CEO of LafaLafa, India’s No. 1 cash back, shopping coupons and bank offers portal. In their first nine months, their Android app has been downloaded over 600,000 times!

Although she started her business in Hong Kong – where she found her first job via the Web Wednesday community – Yosha is on a trip back from attending the 500 Startups accelerator programme in Mountain View, California.

LafaLafa has also recently been selected as one of the promising Indian mobile startups for Facebook’s global FbStart programme. To top it all off, she’s just closed an investment round with Hong Kong’s Vectr Ventures.

We’ll be talking about the booming ecommerce market in India, the role of mobile in facilitating payments and online orders. LafaLafa is soon to launch in Hong Kong so get ready for a flood of mobile shopping deals!
