A bit about Michael Legary:

Focused on developing innovative ways to enable and assure international enterprise from “The Board to the Bit”.
Over the past twenty years has founded, lead and sold several information technology, security and defense research companies and is always looking for new opportunities in these markets.
Enterprise Assurance, when approached correctly, allows an enterprise to grow faster, creating competitive barriers, protecting market share and increasing client trust; while leading to new opportunities and better revenue retention in a scalable manner. Michael's career is focused on creating organizations and offerings that bring this vision to reality.
When not focused solely on business, Michael is involved in helping others launch their next big idea. Since 2011, he's been a proud part of the Startup Community, including Innovation Alley here in Winnipeg, which is a non-profit focused on removing barriers to innovation and entrepreneurial startups across Canada. This includes lots of hands-on work with mentoring startups, securing seed financing and investment, as well as working with industry partners and government to create new programs to support innovation. 
Currently, proud to be serving the community as an ambassador, leading several initiatives under the Innovation Alley banner and as a civil servant focused on creating an innovation culture to enable provincial and municipal growth for the next 100 years. 
Always open to discuss new opportunities and enjoys connecting executives and other peers regarding enterprise governance, innovation, and security.
