Former Knoxvillian among inaugural participants in new EY program focused on minorities

A former Knoxville resident and Oak Ridge National Laboratory colleague has just been selected for an inaugural entrepreneurial accelerator focused on minorities.

Doug Speight, Founding Partner and Chief Executive Officer of AnnexTech Partners, is among the participants in the New York inaugural cohort of the “2021 EY Entrepreneurs Access Network.” He joins a business-accelerating, executive program designed to support Black and Latinx entrepreneurs in further growing their businesses and reinvesting in communities.

Based in Durham, NC, AnnexTech Partners describes itself as a disinvestment facilitator, using its “Liberation Process” to enable clients to unwind non-core products from their portfolio, license intellectual property, transition select team members and keep their customers supported.
