FORT WORTH — ZS Pharma, which is developing a drug for patients with kidney and liver disease, has been named one of two finalists for the National Business Incubation Association’s 2013 Outstanding Incubator Client award in the technology category.

The company is an Acceleration client of TECH Fort Worth, a business incubator.

The winner will be announced April 9 at NBIA’s 27th International Conference on Business Incubation in Boston.

“This is huge recognition, for ZS Pharma and for TECH Fort Worth, as the competition for this award is on an international playing field of all clients of technology incubators,” said Darlene Ryan, TECH Fort Worth executive director. “The criteria include not only the success of the client, but also the role that the incubator played in helping it get there.”
