[ by Legal Era News Network ]


Media group Hindustan Media Ventures Limited (HMVL) has invested Rs. 4 crore in content venture Aleph Digital Solutions Private Limited. Salt Partners and the Punjab Kesari Group, publishers of Punjab Kesari, Hind Samachar, Navodaya Times and Jagbani are amongst the existing investors in Aleph, which runs Pebble, a platform where journalists and freelance writers can sell their content to publishers across the world.
