About Us

Melanin Money was a platform designed to create a space curated exclusively to serve Aspiring 1st Generation Melanin Millionaires. When looking at the disparities in the wealth gap for people of color, we knew we needed to create a trusted community and platform, uniquely serving the needs of those who need the education, support and resources the most.

Led by our Founder, George Acheampong with over a decade of experience as a Financial Advisor and Wealth Manager, we know that we can help lead our people to being the wealth starters for their families.
