DAIR BoosterPacks

You don’t have to start from scratch. BoosterPacks are free, curated packages of resources on 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.

Each BoosterPack includes:

Flight Plan – Concise documentation of implementation and architecture options, key learnings & resources, and a description of a Sample Solution that demonstrates the technology. Flight Plans minimize your learning curve for each technology.

Launch Codes – Software code to deploy the Sample Solution on the DAIR Cloud to accelerate your initial product development.
