Ángel González

Founder & CEO

Boomer entrepreneur. He is a restless dreamer in all counts of life, and a free agent provocateur at the professional arena. A bit shy, likes to be alone and hates stupidity in life…meaning he is not very social. That is why he setup his own Social Media Advertising Company, quite paradoxical right?

Ángel does love advertising and has an extensive 30 years experience bringing brands into life while dealing with different roles at multinational agencies: from junior account executive to co-President in a journey that started in general consumer advertising and continued in healthcare branding

Back in 2009 he decided that it was about time to entrepreneur. At that stage, the horizon of the new collaborative economy was rising and, envisioning that brands were going to be co-created on what was coined as the new markets of conversations, resulted in his what next dream: Ideagoras. A dream that came true resulting in the creation of a new category that provides big value to multinational organizations in a Global, European and Spanish basis.
