Just a few weeks ago Ted Livingston got strong confirmation that his startup Kik has a very good potential of disrupting the Group Messaging business as they confirmed $8 in Series A funding from RRE Ventures, Spark Capital, and Union Square Ventures.  Today news has come out that Ted has donated $1 million to The University of Waterloo’s VeloCity Residence, which is a startup initiative for digital and mobile startups.
