Greater Malabar Initiative (GMi)

Greater Malabar Initiative (GMi) is a citizen’s initiative consisting of successful entrepreneurs, professionals, technocrats and academicians from Malabar region in Kerala who have joined hands with a common vision to ‘Build a Better Malabar for the Next Generation’. This forum was conceived out of a passionate belief that successful people from the region owe a moral responsibility to handover a better Malabar to the next generation. GMI was registered on December 4, 2015 as a non-profit company limited by guarantee under section 8 of the Companies Act 2013. 

GMi works in association with policy makers supporting their initiatives for public benefit. GMi organizes events to promote Malabar as a successful investment destination with the objective of creating jobs. GMi wants to see more and more people come to Malabar as tourists, as professionals and as entrepreneurs.

This event is primarily organized by the Entrepreneurship subcommittee of GMI. The Entrepreneurship subcommittee works with the objective of promoting Entrepreneurship and to develop a comprehensive a startup ecosystem in this region.
