Satellize (formerly known as Exseed Space) is the first private Indian company to have a satellite in space. In December 2018, their first satellite was launched into space via SpaceX.[2] They launched their second satellite, AISAT (called ExseedSat-2) for a customer, AMSAT (Radio Amateur Satellite Corporation) India on board the fourth stage of the PSLV-C45.[3]

Exseed Innovations was started in 2017 by Mahesh Murthy, Asshar Farhan, and Kris Nair in Hyderabad.[4] Its focus is on "assembly, integration, testing and operation of satellites" and seeks to "democratize space exploration".[5]
