4 Nebraska business founders in Pipeline class for 2014

Founders of four Nebraska businesses that help nurses, travel groups, online consumers and health data analyzers will be part of this year’s class in the Pipeline Inc. entrepreneurship program.

They are among 13 new fellows announced at the group’s “innovator of the year” event in Kansas City, Mo., Thursday evening, attended by about 600 people.

Nine others from Kansas and Missouri also will take part in the 2014 program, the yearlong business development program aimed at high-potential entrepreneurs.

The Nebraskans:

>> Brett Byman of Nobl of Lincoln, developer of software that lets nurses check on patients, document procedures more efficiently and update family members on their loved ones’ conditions.

>> David Chait of Travefy of Lincoln, an online planner that lets groups set itineraries, book travel deals and manage shared expenses.

>> Shaz Khan of BuyNow Worldwide of Omaha, developer of a mobile commerce app that enables consumers to make purchases from multimedia ads by sending text messages.

>> Luis Lopez of CardioSys of Omaha, a data science company that changes how health information is analyzed to improve outcomes and guide medical research.
