Nathan Stratton
Vocinity’s Awesome Founder

Vocinity’s founder and CTO, Nathan Stratton, is a passionate technologist with a reputation for “doing the impossible.” A high school dropout, his intellect and passion have made him a 5-time startup leader.

Over the last twenty years, his business and technical leadership

  • The first VoIP provider to expand local calling not just to the US, but to 28 countries
  • The first to virtualize BroadSoft’s BroadWorks telephony server
  • The first VoIP provider to allow users to bring your own device (BYOD)
  • The first 2 line carrier-less phone with VoIP and PSTN lines

  • The first to support over 120 different SIP user agents on a single network
