Sergey Petrossov and JetSmarter have been associated with the notion of success for a long while now. While Petrossov has gained massive recognition such as earning a spot on the Forbes’ 30 Under 30 in Consumer Technology, JetSmarter has the distinction of receiving a valuation of $1.5 billion in the past.
Keeping this in mind, it would be safe to say that while Sergey Petrossov is a success story in the world of entrepreneurship, JetSmarter enjoys the same credibility in the private aviation sector.
Since JetSmarter is Petrossov’s brainchild, the entrepreneur does get additional brownie points for his efforts. After all, if it wasn’t for his idea and perseverance, then JetSmarter wouldn’t have seen the light of day.
How Sergey Petrossov Brought JetSmarter to the World
Sergey Petrossov has had an entrepreneurial approach since a young age. Starting from high school when he started an actual business out of importing and exporting tire trims, Petrossov has been able to build and scale multiple businesses even while being under 30.
That is why, it is no surprise to learn that the idea for JetSmarter came to Petrossov the minute he noticed a great disparity between the level of service that private flying promised to its customers, and the actual act of chartering a flight.
Having lived this stressful experience of chartering a plane in 2009 (on his very first private flight), Sergey Petrossov vowed to put an end to this and bring the level of comfort to charter jet customers that they deserved.
With this, he set out to assemble a team of top-tier developers, who developed the JetSmarter app under Petrossov’s instructions. At the same time, the businessman had been working to bring former employees of companies such as NASA, BMW, and Microsoft under the JetSmarter umbrella. Once he succeeded in that action, the company’s consumer service was launched in 2013.
Since then, JetSmarter hasn’t looked back. From serving premium customers to providing the best that private flying has to offer, the firm has continued on a path of success under Petrossov’s leadership.
