I am looking to join/form a team, and work on something that interests me (ecommerce or otherwise), and has a high probability of success (e.g. traction/growth stats). Prefer startups which already have access to some funding (or very likely to get funding) and/or already have (or extremely likely to have) customers. (e.g. Not really interested in startups only in the "idea" phase.)

I have a top-notch work and educational background, including starting my own company. Can function in a senior position (or advise) in technology, marketing, operations, or strategy.
