Javier Agüera

IMPULSA Business Award for clearly representing the three values the Awards seek to recognise: youth, innovation and business leadership, as well as international reach.



A student of telecommunications engineering in Madrid, Javier Agüera is the principal promoter of the company GeeksPhone, which has already designed and produced three mobile telephones under the GeeksPhone brand. Set up when Agüera was only 16 years old, the company was the first European brand to create and sell a handset using the latest version of Google’s Android 4.0 operating system. The company’s latest model, the GP2, was launched at the last Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, held in February. Agüera is behind other prior initiatives that demonstrate his innovative spirit and entrepreneurial nature, such as the start-ups TopKami and Darkgate Softworks.

The handsets were designed in a small office in a telephone shop in Madrid, while the manufacturing was done in China. GeeksPhone, which currently employs 15 people, has a clear international focus and currently 30% of its sales are made outside Spain.
