Speed of licensing
We request a week, or two at the most, to review the initial application assuming we have a full packet. If everything appears appropriate we issue a Certificate of Public Good which then puts the ball in the applicant's court to finish the process at their leisure; forming the corporation, capitalizing, executing finalized documents and paying the necessary fees.
