Miki Agrawal is a serial social entrepreneur. She was a recipient of the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival’s “Disruptive Innovation Award” and named 2013’s Forbes’ “Top 20 Millienials On a Mission.” Most recently she was named Levo League’s 2015 list of 100 millennials reinventing the world in which we live.

She is the founder of the farm-to-table, gluten-free pizza concept called WILD (www.eatdrinkwild.com) in NYC, and 2015 marks her 10-year anniversary since the restaurant’s inception.

Miki is the Co-Founder and CEO of THINX (www.shethinx.com), a high-tech underwear solution for women with periods. She and her partners also teamed up with AFRIpads in Uganda to get millions of girls back in school by funding a pack of washable cloth pads for every pair of THINX underwear sold.

Miki’s newest undertaking is a company called TUSHY (www.tushy.me) which is bringing bidet attachments to America, while helping to solve the global sanitation crisis (where 40% of the world don’t have access to toilets or sanitation).

Harper Collins published her book "DO COOL SH*T" (www.docoolshit.org) on entrepreneurship and lifestyle design which hit #1 on Amazon’s Bestsellers list. Do Cool Sh*t has grown into a 5-Day Business Bootcamp to help rocket ship people’s ideas into real, tangible businesses in 5 days flat.

Miki is an identical twin, half-Japanese, half-Indian French Canadian, former

professional soccer player and graduate of Cornell University. She can sometimes be found DJ-ing  around the world  as part of the DJ Duo Me2Me2.

Miki embodies the essence of social entrepreneurship.
