BoosterPacks are free, curated packages of resources on a specific emerging technology, built by experienced Canadian businesses who have built products or services using that technology and are willing to share their expertise.
Think of it as a speed boost to get your start-up or early-stage business to market faster. BoosterPacks help you understand and experiment with a new technology quickly so that you can adopt it for your business’s unique needs.
Developed for Canadian businesses by Canadian businesses.
We’ve enlisted experienced Canadian businesses – “BoosterPack Builders” – to curate their knowledge and expertise with specific emerging technologies. These Builders have either developed commercially available products and services using this technology.
The goal of each BoosterPack is to help you get to market faster by benefiting from some of the tips and resources that helped the Builders, while avoiding some of their pitfalls.
BoosterPacks are part of the DAIR Cloud resource bundle, which also includes the Cloud Platform and the DAIR Community of Canadian startups.
