Miki Agrawal

Cofounder, Thinx

Most Creative People

Miki Agrawal launched period underwear line Thinx in 2010. She envisioned Thinx as a fashionable and more environmentally friendly alternative to pads and tampons. Through a partnership with AFRIpads, sales from Thinx underwear fund donations of reusable cloth pads so girls in Uganda don’t need to miss school because of their periods. Agrawal's collection has since expanded to include Icon underwear, designed for women with light bladder leakage; those sales help fund the Fistula Foundation and combat the fistula crisis in developing countries. 

Agrawal is also founder of bidet company Tushy, and Wild, a line of restaurants in New York City that offer farm-to-table, gluten-free pizzas and pastas. She is the author of entrepreneurship and lifestyle design book Do Cool Sh*t.
