Ryze.com is a free and paid social networking website designed to link business professionals, particularly new entrepreneurs. The site claims to have over 500,000 members in 200 countries, with over 1,000 external organizations hosting sub-networks on the site. Both paid and unpaid membership levels are offered. Founded in early 2001 by Adrian Scott, it was one of the first of a new generation of social networking services, and was a heavy influence on Friendster, founded by early Ryze member Jonathan Abrams in 2002. Ken Berger was the first external member of Ryze, joining in June 2001.[2]


The site has received a large number of positive media mentions in publications including forbes.com, Newsday, The New York Times,[3]The Boston Globe,[4]USA Today[5] and others.
