Startup Braga launches a beta-testing platform linked to its website that allows real users and investors to get to know its startup community better while providing real-time feedback on their products.

The main objective of this platform is to allow Startup Braga’s community of startups to receive feedback on their products, so that they can improve them and so they can understand what causes some users to not buy their products, or why investors are not reaching out to them.

“This platform comes even closer to the startups of its customers, by creating a direct channel where the latter can give real and direct feedback to Startup Braga’s startup contacts, which will be very important so that entrepreneurs can improve their products,” said Startup Braga Executive Director Alexandre Mendes, in a statement.

In the initial phase, the platform will start with a sample of 20 startups, but will be constantly updated until all 123 startups that belong to the Startup Braga ecosystem are represented.

The platform was created to help the startups in Startup Braga’s community understand what they can improve on and how their products or services are perceived by their potential clients or investors.

To provide feedback, users simply have to login and choose the startup they want to engage with and answer their questions.
