Qik, the nifty little application available for various mobile phones that lets users record video directly on Qik’s servers and broadcast live over any kind of network has just received some investment from Ben Horowitz and Marc Andreessen. Though, the exact amount of the funding, expectedly, has not been disclosed.
Co-founder of the social network creator site Ning.com, Marc Andreessen, who just joined the Facebook Board Members has teamed up with Ben Horowitz, the VP and GM at Hewlett-Packard, to provide “significant investment” in the California based company. The Duo will also join the company as members of the board of advisors.
Qik is becoming immensely popular among the masses with its easy to install app and ability to start streaming within minutes. The site’s ability to integrate with popular social networks such as Twitter, MySpace and Orkut and even integrates with YouTube and Justin.tv
We, here, are great fans of Qik ourselves, having put it to use many a times. Citizen journalism is great fun in itself. Dan had covered the iPhone 3G launch in UK, while I was at the phone’s launch in India.
So, has Qik won now?
