Everybody, welcome to this episode of the Mindshare Mindcast, where today JJ and I are super excited to speak with Miki Agrawal. She’s a serial social entrepreneur who was actually the recipient of the Tribeca Film Festivals’ Disruptive Innovation Award and named the 2017 Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum.
She was also the Social Entrepreneur of the Year by the World Technology Summit and named one of Inc. Magazine’s Most Impressive Women Entrepreneurs of 2016. Miki was also Forbes Top 20 Millennials on a Mission and made the cover of Entrepreneur Magazine in 2016. What a total bad ass, but it does not stop there. Most recently, Miki was named Fast Company’s Most Creative People in 2018. She’s the founder of the acclaimed farm to table alternative pizza concept called Wild. With three locations now, I think in New York City, one in Guatemala on the way. Miki co founded Thinx, a high-tech period proof underwear brand and lead the company as CEO to evaluation to over $150 million.
