Creating the Growth by persuading customers that the company’s idea is viable and will remain flexible
The Xeros company was founded in 2006, with a mission to revolutionalise the laundry industry with the power of polymer bead cleaning.
The beads are recyclable, once they need to be replaced (only after thousands of washes) they are never thrown away to occupy a landfill, but are collected and re-used by other industries.
The product is created to save water and money with superior cleaning after 30 years of specific research to generate the unique cleaning system.
The revolutionary polymer beads are able to absorb dirt and hardest stains, stray dye, carrying them away from fabrics.
In terms of financial aspect, the main challenge for Xeros is to reduce the cost and attract more investment to gain market share by having a competitive advantage
Economies of scale; set up the barriers of entry
Keep investing in R&D to expand the beneficial applications of the technology.

From a marketing perspective, creating and developing clever marketing strategies is the key for achieving differentiation in the market and directly raising sales.
Achieve customer loyalty with gaining their trust.
Improve the products
