The reviewers with affiliations will not be able to review grants within their category; however, they will be great resources and act as subject matter experts.
I am the Host of The Moonaco Podcast, this means I have a good one on one relationships to many of the building teams. But that will not have an effect on the decisions made for a grant as they still have to fulfill the requirements.

Yes - I am willing to KYC and sign a service provider contract with the Shimmer Community Treasury

Yes, due to working Offshore, i am working for 2 weeks, and at home for 4 weeks. This means 8 out of 12 months, i am completely free, and while beeing offshore, i am still very available both on and off shift.
9.) If you are voted in the top 2 reviewers, you may have the option to join the Growth Committee and work with the TEA representatives. In this case, you may be required to work hours over the required 10 hrs per week. Are you able to commit to this if required?
Yes, I believe this could be an option
10.) Are you willing to sign a service provider contract, including an NDA with the Tangle Ecosystem Association, and respect the Non-Disclosure Agreement if selected as a member of the Growth Committee? Breaking the Non-Disclosure Agreement may bring consequences financially and or legally.
Yes - I am willing to sign a service provider contract and Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA). I absolutely will respect all binding effects within such agreement contracts.
11.) Provide any web links or supporting documentation you would like the community to see when assessing you for the Shimmer Community Treasury Grant Reviewer position.
12.) What is your long-term vision of the Shimmer Community Treasury? How do you see the Community Treasury affecting the Shimmer & IOTA ecosystem, and what does the Shimmer & IOTA Ecosystem look to you in three years?
We see such Grant Programs has been a major success in other ecosystems. I believe this Treasury is one of the key building blocks to push this ecosystem to a whole new level where we can attract more builders and pioneers. Hopefully in the future this Treasury have helped enough Projects to become self sustained that the ecosystem grows by it self.
