ABOUT GMi

We are a citizen's initiative consisting of successful entrepreneurs, professionals and technocrats from North Kerala (popularly known as Malabar) who have joined hands with a common vision to ‘Build A Better Malabar for The Next Generation’. This forum was conceived out of our passionate belief that the successful people from the Malabar region owe a moral responsibility to handover a better Malabar to the next generation. Historically ‘Calicut’ is often referred to as ‘The Gateway of Malabar’, since the Portuguese explorer ‘Vasco de Gama’ became the first European to set foot on Indian Soil when he arrived at ‘Calicut’ on the Malabar coast in the year 1498.

Vision

  • Build a better malabar for the next generation

Mission

  • GMi will work hand in hand with policy makers supporting their initiatives for public benefit
  • GMi will lead initiatives to promote Malabar as a successful investment destination with the objective of creating jobs for our youth;
  • GMi will ensure that more and more people come to Malabar – as tourists, as professionals, as entrepreneurs
