London-based customer rewards API framework Antavo has closed its series A round at €10 million. Euroventures led the round alongside Lead Ventures, iEurope, Innovation Nest and private investors including Zoltan Vardy.

Marketed under an SaaS model, Antavo’s software platform serves as a no-code tool with drag-and-drop interfaces, visual editors intended to allow businesses to quickly deploy loyalty programs.

Antavo wants to win over businesses that are ready to move beyond the traditional points-for-goods loyalty system, through features like gamification, social interactions and lifestyle engagement.
