    On What's Brewing, Dream11, India's only gaming unicorn, has won the new title sponsor rights of Indian Premier League 2020 for Rs 222 crore. That's nearly 50 percent discount from the Rs 440 crore that the earlier title sponsor Vivo was paying for the same period. Earlier this month, Vivo pulled out of this year's commitment.

    Bengaluru-based space tech startup Pixxel recently raised $5 million in seed funding. Its founders -- 22-year-old space enthusiasts and BITS Pilani graduates -- are planning to launch Pixxel’s first satellite by the end of this year. They believe space technology can make life on earth better and more sustainable. To know how and the road ahead for the venture, Shruti Mishra caught up with Pixxel founders Awais Ahmed and Kshitij Khandelwal.
