About the Company

Santevia specializes in water filtration systems that purify water and enrich it with minerals, creating great tasting water. Their products range from home filtration systems to on-the-go filters, aiming to provide healthier water by adding essential minerals and removing contaminants.

Challenges Faced

Initially, the company struggled with limited brand recognition and market penetration outside its home region, making it difficult to gain traction in a competitive market like the U.S. 

Additionally, Santevia optimized its marketing strategy for a demographic unfamiliar with its products. The need for substantial marketing investments to test and identify effective advertising mediums further strained their resources. These challenges necessitated a strategic approach to market entry, prompting the pursuit of a market expansion grant to facilitate structured growth and mitigate the risks associated with entering a new regional market.
