For social entrepreneur Miki Agrawal, no business idea is taboo. She's capitalizing on everything that happens behind the bathroom door - starting with periods. As the Co-founder and CEO of THINX, Miki has developed and patented period-proof underwear that not only works, but is also fashionable. And for each pair of underwear purchased, the company will donate money toward the cost of one set of reusable pads for a Ugandan girl through Afripads. Miki's also launching ICON, underwear for women who experience incontinence and TUSHY, bidets that attach to your toilet to create an eco-friendly and hygienic bathroom experience. Prior to conquering the toilet, Miki founded Wild, the gluten free pizza restaurants located in Manhattan and Williamsburg. On the episode, Sophia and Miki discuss Miki's hilarious pitching method to investors, how a three-legged race with her twin sister led to the idea of THINX, and Miki's pants-dropping #Girlbossmoment.
