Bill Di Nardo
Toronto, Ontario, Canada
I have been involved in early stage and growth tech companies for almost 20 years starting in the mid 90s when I co-founded my first big venture - Grocery Gateway. I love working with passionate entrepreneurs and helping them grow their businesses.
I have spent most of my adult life playing and coaching rugby. All of my kids play the game and I met my wife of 20 years playing the game (everyone says she was the better player). And my business partner of 20 years also came from our shared passion for the sport (and yes he was better too).
I am the very proud father of 4 exceptional kids who give me great pleasure when they aren't driving me nuts!
We recently started a program in Toronto called TIRF (Toronto Inner City Rugby Foundation) that helps make the sport more accessible to kids in priority neighbourhoods around Toronto. It is a great sport for teaching values and building character.
