Lincoln-based health tech startup Nobl has announced the close of their Series A fundraising round.
The round included Nelnet, Linseed Capital, and the Nebraska Angels.
Nobl is the creator of the Vigilance software platform that helps nursing teams improve compliance and communication. Nobl was founded in 2013 by Brett Byman, CEO; Katie Hottovy, CMO; Raymond Page, CTO.
Nobl said in a press release that the raise will be used for hiring new employees, expanding advertising and marketing, and the development of R&D.
“This opportunity of technology-aided care has helped Nobl identify a number of new product avenues, the next of which will be launching in August of this year,” said Hottovy. “This new offering will work in collaboration with our current hourly rounding platform Vigilance to provide even greater benefits to both patients and nursing staff.”
Nobl is also using new wearable technology to analyze the impact of their Vigilance system.
“Just this month, we began using Fitbits at one of our newer hospitals to begin measuring the impact that Vigilance has on nurse efficiency,” said Hottovy. “An official study involving Fitbits and nurses has never been done before until now.”
