Why are you working for/with tech startups?

The usual respond is "I am passionate about running a startup". That's a very broad term and somewhat meaningless. Being passionate means something is motivating the desire to continue whatever path the originator embarks on. It's the emotional and glorified response to this question, and often put forth just to answer the question. Over the years though, I came to realize that being passionate about something is just not enough. Especially in business. So i guess the get-to-the-point response is "Money, Innovate to kick ass, and the desire to consistently deliver value to satisfy my users and my shareholders so everybody go home happy". Because the feeling of accomplishment is just unparalleled with anything else.

What problem are you trying to solve?

Everything my users throw at me. Right now we're trying to change the way consumers shop online. Try to tackle that, huh? :)

Describe startup life.

Busy but fulfilling. Just like going to an upscale Japanese buffet with a significant discount. You stuff yourself, but you're happy.

Introduction

I'm interested in meeting new people with an entrepreneurial mindset and open to collaboration on various dimensions of tech business. I'm also looking for talented coders to join the team, buzz me if you're capable and creative.
