Ryan Barone Joins Forbes Technology Council

RentRedi Founder and CEO Becomes Contributing Member of Invitation-Only Community for World-Class CIOs, CTOs, and Technology Executives.

NEW YORK, NY,  June 5, 2023RentRedi CEO Ryan Barone has been accepted into the Forbes Technology Council, an invitation-only community for world-class CIOs, CTOs, and technology executives. As co-founder of a successful cloud-based property management platform that has become a go-to resource for landlords and renters, Barone will be sharing his advice on technology and entrepreneurship with the Forbes readership. 

Barone was vetted and selected for the Forbes Technology Council by a review committee based on his track record of successfully impacting business growth metrics, as well as personal and professional achievements and honors. As a member, he has already authored an article titled “Three Steps To Launch A Technology Startup Straight Out Of College” and has been featured in a Council Post about automation.

“We are honored to welcome Ryan Barone into the community,” said Scott Gerber, founder of Forbes Councils, the collective that includes Forbes Technology Council. “Our mission with Forbes Councils is to bring together proven leaders from every industry, creating a curated, social capital-driven network that helps every member grow professionally and make an even greater impact on the business world.”

Barone’s entrepreneurial journey began in 2016 while he was still in college. After he lost out on a coveted apartment in NYC because he couldn’t gather application documents quickly enough, Barone began building a prototype of the RentRedi app.

Although Barone set out to build RentRedi as an app for renters, he was surprised to realize that landlords were just as frustrated with the rental process. Based on research and feedback from those on both sides, Barone adapted to customer needs and the marketplace, and built a platform that solves problems for landlords, while helping tenants along the way.

Barone’s philosophy is to give customers everything they need, and nothing that they don’t. The company’s direct engagement with its customers sets it apart from all other property management platforms, and has resulted in RentRedi’s consistent and rapid growth.

“I’m honored to join the Forbes Technology Council, and grateful for the opportunity to connect with a network that provides so much value to its community,” said Barone. “I’m also excited to share the knowledge I’ve gained through my experiences with other members and Forbes audiences.” 

Drawing from his leadership in technology innovation and business acumen, Barone looks forward to sharing his insights on a variety of topics such as building useful technologies, nurturing customer relationships, running a tech start-up, fueling the corporate growth engine, and scaling a business.
