Info Session: The Cloud Landscape & Free DAIR Cloud for Canadian Startups

July 24, 2019. 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.

Cloud computing has revolutionized the way businesses function. Without the need for onsite infrastructure, cloud technologies enable tech entrepreneurs to build, test, prototype, and commercialize their products and services to easily scale globally. In this session, attendees will learn about the latest developments and trends in the cloud landscape and will also learn how they can benefit from CANARIE’s DAIR Cloud program, a free, federally-supported program for Canadian startups. More than 1200 startups have already used the DAIR Cloud, saving themselves operating and capital expenses as they developed and tested their new ideas on the service.

Attendees will also hear about the latest developments in the DAIR Program, including a service that allows them to benefit from the expertise of experienced Canadian startups in key emerging technologies to minimize learning in a cost-free environment. Visit more information.
