It is hard to say, too many variables, biz plan dependencies, if the
string will be contended it can go to a more complex/costly process,
but the estimate just for the application could be 2X or 3X the
application fee.

Another panelist also made reference at the biz plan but stated that
you may need to have available 3X the figure of your annual operating
