Let’s face it— paying for college is not easy. That is why Kelly Peeler created NextGenVest, a life-changing service to many high schoolers in the world. $2.7 billion in free federal aid are unclaimed every year and Kelly is changing the world by making her service available to anyone across their online digital financial literacy platform.Kelly has already been very successful with her career before NextGenVest. As the Varsity Captain for Harvard’s Water Polo team, she gained strong multitasking skills and the ability to perform under high pressure, which is crucial for developing a company. Paired not only with her talent, Kelly is also passionate about helping and inspiring students achieve their full potential. Her proudest moments are when their students tell their friends that NGV has helped them. From helping them daily, NextGenVest is able to greatly affect student lives.During her webinar, Kelly will discuss financial planning for students and how it changes people’s lives. This will be an amazing chance for students and adults alike!
Kelly is the founder of NextGenVest.com, the Money Mentor for every student. NextGenVest helps students save time and money with all major financial decisions, starting with paying for college, over text message by connecting them to a Money Mentor, a real person over a 24/7 hotline. Students leave $2.7 billion unclaimed every year in free federal aid for college because they do not fill out the appropriate forms. NextGenVest has helped thousands of students across 40 states get more money for college – last week alone we saved students $143,000 in tuition costs.
