Startup Canada Podcast: Entrepreneur Michael Legary on repping Winnipeg

Startup Canada Podcast Michael Legary

When he was just 17 years old, Michael Legary knew he wanted to be an entrepreneur — he says he was born to be one. Now, after founding several successful startups, Legary is still passionate about building up other new small businesses.

As a leader in Winnipeg’s startup community, Legary works to support several local organizations, such as Innovate Alley, Ramp Up Manitoba, and Havana Controls. Legary is a champion of community building, local entrepreneurship, and investment opportunities in Manitoba.

“The last five years of my life have been trying to help out in my small way in growing [the Winnipeg Startup] ecosystem… so that entrepreneurs could have a community.”

In this episode of Startup Canada Podcast, host Rivers Corbett chats with Legary about fuelling Winnipeg’s grassroots startup movement, the challenges of starting a business, and what it’s like to have an entrepreneurial destiny.
