Forbes has listed Sergey Petrossov as one of the top 30 under 30 individuals who deal with consumer technology. The Sun-Sentinel has also recognized him as a senior working professional in South Florida. Petrossov is always looking for ways in which he can innovate the various industries.
Before founding JetSmarter, Sergey Petrossov had initially co-founded two IT systems. For starters, he had come up with an online chat system that could be used on a website to chat with the customer service. He had also come up with a distance-learning platform that could be used by Russian-speaking educational institutions. Petrossov has also been a board adviser in a private jet operator that is based in South Florida. During this period, the private jet operator had the largest Gulfstream charter fleet that was on high demand.
After flying with a private jet, Sergey Petrossov came across various challenges when booking a charter flight. To make sure there was efficiency, he saw it fit to incorporate technology in the private aviation booking process. Sergey Petrossov then founded JetSmarter. He made sure that the JetSmarter project was well funded. By working together with his development team from the previous projects, he was able to ensure that most of the flyers would be connected with the private jet operators that are well rated. In 2012, Petrossov launched the beta version of JetSmarter. He then raised some additional capital that would enable him to complete the JetSmarter project. He also collaborated with other partners and vendors before officially launching the JetSmarter application in March 2013.
JetSmarter has a well-equipped advisory and management team. Some of these individuals have also executed some projects in companies such as Nokia, NASA, Mercedes Benz, BMW, and Uber. By combining the vision of Sergey Petrossov with the expertise that these professionals possess, JetSmarter came to life.
