From an automatic chute to help cattle ropers practice their sport to pharmaceuticals, the Tech Fort Worth Impact Awards offered up an array of innovation and entrepreneurship in the area.  

Over 100 attendees also got exposed to a number of local tech startups along with an awards ceremony that honored standout companies.
