“Vesa is a bohem smart guy. It was a pleasure to work with him.”
Sakari Volanen -Business Manager /e-services b2c, Oy Radiolinja Ab


"DJ Vesku is one of the rare people who understand how to use technology to actually create better services. Vesku is known for his passion in music and pop-culture. That, plus his understanding of different areas like mobile services and IT-technologies, makes him a force to respect when it, comes to e.g. building new entertainment services. Last but not least, DJ Vesku is also a man one can trust."
Tommi Hietavuo - Hp Bazaar
