Sergey Petrossov is the founder and the CEO of JetSmarter, the developer of a mobile application that lets travelers access the private jet marketplace in order to book a custom private flight. He has been awarded the Forbes 30 Under 30 award in the Consumer Technology category as well as South Florida’s Top Working Professionals. Before he became the CEO of JetSmarter, Petrossov already has an impressive track record in his hands.

Before he decided to make his own company, Sergey Petrossov was a co-founder of two IT projects, an online chat system which serves as website customer service and a distance learning platform that is used for Russian-speaking educational institutions. He was also an advisor to a private jet operator that of a Florida-based company.

Because of his time as an advisor in this private jet operator, Sergey Petrossov saw the inefficiencies of brick and mortar booking of flights. He also realized that the market for mobile application and services are becoming more and more popular around the world. Because of this, he created the idea of a mobile platform that would turn out to be JetSmarter.

When he was done developing his initial plan, Sergey Petrossov started in the development of the app by gathering a development team with his own capital. The app was planned to connect flyers with top-rated private jet operators. In 2012, he and his team deployed the beta version for select users. JetSmarter app was launched successfully in 2013 after more help from investors, vendors, and partners.

What makes the JetSmarter app success is because of its well-thought design and the development team’s skills. The member of the team has been involved in successful projects for NASA, Nokia, Microsoft, BMW, and Uber. The team has more than 100 years of experience in technology, air travel, and logistics.

Sergey Petrossov believes that in ten years, the big opportunity for JetSmarter will arise. He and his company targets flights that are shorter-distance and can provide value for its consumers. The company plans to achieve a $500 per seat solution. But because the company is still on its baby steps, he and his team are still learning in this industry.
