Mangaluru is the number one city for private entrepreneurship in the entire world. No one can beat them in this matter. Within a short period of time, they built a cinema industry now called the ‘Coastalwood’. Now they are closely competing with Sandalwood. It shows how committed they are in entrepreneurship,”
