FM Thinks Small
It’s pretty complicated: 10 speakers, 10 minutes, and 10 small thoughts.
Inspired by TED Talks and motivated by what makes Harvard extraordinary—avant-garde research, brilliant professors, and penetrating ideas—FM Thinks Small will be a mesmerizing two hours, a new Harvard tradition, and an all-around exciting, revolutionary, thought-provoking, and downright MINISCULE event.
