Tony Di Fatta describes himself as an entrepreneur at heart and with multiple successful businesses on his resume, the statement fits.
In 2009, he co-founded the Baltimore Bocce League which is today known as Volo City, a nationwide recreational sports league. Just three years later, the Towson University graduate started TDF Tax and Accounting.
With businessman Michael Tich, the two bought and renovated a building in downtown Towson and turned the space into Insight Community, an incubator for developing small businesses and entrepreneurs. In 2017, the pair launched Insight ConneX, a business networking organization focusing on helping professionals grow their business while expanding their networks.
Di Fatta notes he most enjoys meeting interesting people and businesses as a part of his work.
His entrepreneurial spirit came from his father who told him to go start a business when he was just a child. Di Fatta would go on to work with his father — he ran the Baja Beach Club — and later became the owner. He also invested in a chain of pizza and sub shops, A Slice of Italy Pizzeria, in the Washington area and worked there until his early 20s. After college, he began his tax career working at KPMG and SC&H Group Inc.
When he is not creating businesses, Di Fatta serves on the board of the Baltimore Robotics Center and gives his time to the Associated Italian American Charities. “They are both good organizations that I believe in,” he said.
