Business: ReThink, Inc.
Trisha Prabhu is the 20-year-old Founder & CEO of ReThink™, a patented app tackling cyberbullying. She is also an undergraduate student at Harvard University. As a former victim of cyberbullying, Trisha’s personal experiences of being harassed inspired her to stand up to online hate. For her work with ReThink, Trisha has received much acclaim: she was named a Google Science Fair Global Finalist, selected to present ReThink at The White House, and is the humbled recipient of many awards; among them, the WebMD Health Hero Prodigy Award. Trisha has also made waves in the business world — as a contestant on ABC’s Shark Tank, pitching ReThink, and as a US Delegate to the 2016 Global Entrepreneurship Summit. Finally, Trisha has become an ambassador for the movement to tackle online hate, delivering 50+ talks in 30 cities about the power of “ReThinking.” Outside of ReThink, Trisha volunteers her time teaching women to code at Girls Who Code, and leading SoGal Boston, a chapter of the SoGal movement.
