The Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship held its annual gala event on November 17th, to celebrate its students and partners. NFTE encourages entrepreneurship in schools and sent one of its students to the White House earlier this year.

Twenty-five NFTE students were on hand to present businesses and Michael G. Rubin, CEO of Kynetic and former CEO of GSI Commerce, was the keynote speaker. GSI, you may remember, sold to eBay earlier this year for $2.4 billion.
