Qik Nabs $5.5 Million In Funding For Mobile Video Streaming

Mobile video streaming service Qik has raised just under $5.5 million in funding, according to an SEC filing, which the company has confirmed. This round’s backers include Quest Venture Partners, CampVentures, and private investors. The Redwood City, Calif.-based startup raised an undisclosed amount of funding from Marc Andreessen and Ben Horowitz last year.

Qik competes with other mobile streaming services like Kyte — but it recently received a big endorsement from *Nokia*, by being one of the featured apps in its Ovi Store content and apps marketplace. The company has also tried to grow its user base beyond just the tech-savvy mobile set by supporting more “mainstream” phones like the BlackBerry Curve and Bold.
