Co-Founder & Chief Visionary Officer, THINX
Miki Agrawal is the CEO and Co-Founder of THINX, a high-tech, beautiful underwear solution for women to wear during their periods. She teamed up with AFRIpads in Uganda to fund a pack of reusable cloth pads for every underwear sold to get millions of girls back in school. To date, Miki and THINX have helped over 60,000 girls go back to school.
Her next big focus is solving the light bladder leaks that women are facing today and giving women who leak the ability to feel like themselves again. 1 in 3 women pee a little when they laugh, jump, jog, sneeze or cough. So she and her team created a special gorgeous patented underwear called ICON to remind these women that they’re powerful women first and mothers second. For every Icon sold, they are funding Fistula Foundation to fight the fistula crisis in Africa and other developing countries.
Her most recent project is called TUSHY aiming to upgrade the American bathroom experience and to help fight the global sanitation crisis that is affecting 40% of the world.
Miki is also the Founder of the acclaimed farm-to-table gluten-free pizza concept WILD and 2016 marks her 11 year anniversary of having her restaurants open. She has 3 locations in NYC.
Harper Collins published her book entitled DO COOL SH*T on entrepreneurship and lifestyle design. The book hit #1 on Amazon Bestsellers list in entrepreneurship. Miki is an identical twin, half-Japanese, half-Indian French Canadian, former professional soccer player and graduate of Cornell University.
