Malini Srikrishna

Entrepreneur Storyteller • Social Worker

My life's work is helping leaders transform revolutionary thoughts and ideas into evolutionary outcomes. 

I have always gravitated towards visions and tools that I believe will uplift the human condition. Through my experiences working with diverse sectors and teams, including as the Vice-President of Global Operations at NxGen COACH Network, Founder of Milan Global, Director of Harvard GSAS Business Club Social Impact Initiative and Harvard Divinity Scholar, I have explored entrepreneurship as a vehicle for evolutionary change.

My Experience

My work experience spans community organising, conflict resolution, entrepreneurship, media, skill development, and storytelling. I've executed projects in these fields alongside leaders and entrepreneurs in Asia, Africa, North America and the Middle East. As VP of Global Operations at NxGen COACH Network, I utilise my experience to enable leaders and teams across cultural contexts and sectors to achieve ambitious goals.

I earned a full scholarship for my Bachelor of Science in Social Work from The Ohio State University through the Morrill Scholarship Program by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion. During my time in Ohio, I conducted research on identity and access, organised for better legislation, facilitated social dialogues around polarising issues, wrote for local newspapers, organised in community centers and prisons, and developed cross-cultural collaborations. 

I continued my education with a Master’s degree in Theological Studies at Harvard Divinity School specialising in Leadership, Entrepreneurship, and Liberation Studies. While at Harvard, my leadership roles included being elected President of the Harvard Divinity School Student Association and Director of the Harvard GSAS Business Club Social Entrepreneurship Initiative. As part of the Crossroads Emerging Leaders Program started by the South Asia Institute, I extended access to Harvard's resources to low-income, first-generation students globally.

Through my Harvard Innovation Lab venture, Milan Global, I empowered underserved youth globally, teaching them to address real-world challenges alongside social entrepreneurs. In 2023, I was honoured as one of the "Top 10 Women Leaders in Bangalore" by Women Entrepreneur Magazine.



Over the past decade, I have worked across contexts and geographies to tell stories, build diverse teams, and push forward the human condition. This has spanned sectors, including education, health, finance, media, and technology.
