Resurgent Karnataka is anchored by Prof. MV Rajeev Gowda, MP, and edited by Sandhya Mendonca, Founder, MD & Editor-in-Chief of Raintree Media. She says, “We have taken a hard, close look at 14 core sectors of Karnataka’s economy. We offer overviews of these sectors, we analyse the state’s performance and examine the sectoral industrial policies. This is not a static book though. We think of this book as a dialogue, as it has insights of over 60 business leaders and domain experts. Some of these are legendary entrepreneurs and iconic trendsetters who have built global businesses from this very state. Some of them are new players in the world of business, chasing their dreams in younger domains. They share their views, analyses and prescriptions about Karnataka as an investment destination for the world.”
