Tech entrepreneur Tomaz Stolfa has stepped down as the CEO of one of Slovenia’s most well known startups, Vox.io. Vox.io‘s goal was to revolutionize the VoIP industry with a completely new piece of internet telephony software that could compete with Skype and started its life 2 years ago.

Stolfa announced his leaving the company via his personal blog, saying that he’s very grateful to Vox.io’s team for their hard work, as well as to their customers, partners and investors, but needs to recharge his batteries:

While vox.io made tremendous strides in its effort to improve the ways we communicate, there’s still a massive amount of room for innovation. Exploring how to make communications better through innovative technology and new visual interfaces is my passion. Once I recharge my batteries you’ll hear more from me on this front.

When asked, Stolfa didn’t have any additional comments for Netocratic, but knowing him we probably won’t have to wait so long for his return to the scene. While Vox.io hasn’t yet become a big competitor to Skype, it did hit over 1 million users in 2012, gaining quite a bit of traction. What do you think happened? In any case, good luck to Tomaž on his future ventures…
