WELCOME TO VOCATIV

 

Vocativ explores the Deep Web to discover original stories, hidden perspectives and unheard voices from around the world.

Vocativ is smart, creative and inclusive. Our storytellers and our audience – a diverse, open-minded, social generation – are in this together, drawing inspiration from one another.

At the heart of Vocativ is our exclusive technology, where science meets storytelling. In real time, we share what’s interesting and what’s valuable, speaking in a visual language with our audience, wherever they are naturally gathering. Always tied together by technology, we go deeper than ever possible before.

Founded by Mati Kochavi and headquartered in New York City, Vocativ employs dozens of journalists, producers, data analysts, engineers, designers, and developers. Gregory Gittrich is the Chief Content Officer, Danna Rabin is the Chief Operating Officer, and Steve Alperin is the Chief Business Officer. Our senior management team includes Elena Haliczer, Markham Nolan and Ernie Sander.

Here’s a detailed look at our proprietary technology.
