Emerging technology that can harness the power of the sun, reduce the potential of infectious diseases and improve auto recycling are among nine finalists for the 2013 TECH Fort Worth Impact Awards.

The awards are designed to increase awareness about entrepreneurial activity in North Texas and will be presented at a luncheon May 15 at Texas Christian University.

The awards are granted to early-stage businesses commercializing innovative products or services that will have a significant impact on the environment, health care and on the community through improved education and increased safety and security.

The event also raises funds to support business incubation programs for technology-based entrepreneurs. TECH Fort Worth is a nonprofit technology incubator with offices at the James E. Guinn Complex in south Fort Worth and at the University of North Texas Health Science Center’s Center for BioHealth
