I really like the phrasing. However, to avoid confusion and any sense
of misunderstanding, I think the 'Inspired by' would need to be bigger
- to the point of significantly overlapping 'boost'. Otherwise I'd
feel 'sneaky' about using it - as it still looks like I'm trying to
associate myself with boost more than I deserve.
It also has less 'strength' of meaning than 'for use with' (or
'complements') because 'inspired' could mean almost anything...
