Qik snags $5.5 million in new funding

How popular is Qik, you ask? Put it this way: The mobile streaming video service just secured about $5.5 million dollars in funding, as noted in a recent SEC filing, which you can read after the break, if you're so inclined. [via mocoNews]

Among the investors throwing in this time around are Quest Venture Parterners, some private investors and CampVentures.

If you haven't played with Qik yet, definitely give it a shot. It's a simple way to livestream video from your phone. We demoed it way back in the beta stages, and it's cool to see just how much it's grown since then.
