Coverflex, a Braga, Portugal-based all-in-one platform that enables companies to design and personalize compensation offers, announced that it has secured €15 million in Series A funding, bringing its total raised to date to €20 million.
The round was led by SCOR Ventures, with participation from Breega, MS&AD, Armilar, Stableton, BiG Start Ventures, and Shilling.
High-profile business angels like Firmin Zocchetto (CEO at PayFit), Job van der Voort (CEO at Remote – a client), Nuno Sebastião (CEO at Feedzai), Humberto Ayres Pereira (CEO at Rows—a client), Hugo Arévalo (co-founder at ThePower Business School), Alessandro Petazzi (co-founder of Musement), and Davide Dattoli (founder of Talent Garden), among others, also participated in the round.
The proceeds will be used to grow its team to more than 150 people by the end of 2023, mainly in its product, sales, and engineering teams. Currently, Coverflex has 100 employees across Europe and Latin America.
“In the current macro environment, this Series A round validates our ambitious vision, product-market fit in Portugal, and a market opportunity in Europe, especially in Italy, Edenred’s most profitable market in the world, despite having a strong pushback from both merchants and users recently,” says Miguel Amaro, Coverflex CEO.
Coverflex aggregates multiple providers and helps companies cut costs with tax-efficient benefits insurance, meal allowance, and exclusive discounts. As a result, it gives companies a competitive edge in retaining their most valuable asset – people.
As a part of its European expansion, Coverflex aims to disrupt the meal voucher (“buoni pasto”) and welfare market in Italy with the launch of a platform with low, sustainable merchant fees to bars, supermarkets, and restaurants.
