FiniVision is a financial planner for secondary school students. The cost of university is severely neglected in the decision making process and is often ignored. However; this cost is what puts students in a financial hole right out of university. FiniVision hopes to help dig students out and offer them with a clear picture of the costs and their alternatives.

Yusuf Nissar: University, the first step into adulthood. It is a place where people mature and finally enter into the real world. The only issue is, this education and experience come with a lot of debt. With the average student paying nearly $20,000 every year to get their post-secondary education, no wonder people are complaining about student debt. Not to mention how these prices will only increase as the years pass, with projections putting the average cost of a 4-year program with residence to break $100,000 in just 8 years! So, does this mean we should stop going to university? No! Of course not! If post-secondary school is the next step in your life then you should pursue it, but that doesn’t mean you have to get completely crushed by debt. Introducing my company, Finivision, a financial planner for prospective post-secondary students. Finivision will offer students a way to plan ahead and find the most cost-efficient solution for them when heading out post-secondary school. It’ll do this by offering the users different questions to fill out related to how they plan to get their post-secondary education. Using the answers, the Finivision website will look for any place the user can reduce the cost of their education may it be travelling by bike rather than bus or living further from campus for cheaper-renting prices, Finivision will take everything into consideration. With the financial side of university being ignored by larger websites such as myBlueprint and eINFO, Finivision will make a great addition to the resources offered to secondary students. So, plan ahead, and go and take a look with Finivision.
