Becoming a successful entrepreneur takes hard work and dedication. Sergey Petrossov is a living proof that hard work and persistence eventually pay off. He is currently a JetSmarter CEO. He was rewarded Forbes 30 under 30 in Consumer Technology. He was also awarded South Florida’s Top Professional by Sun Sentinel.
It might be useful to provide a little background information on Sergey Petrossov. He truly has an impressive resume of past accomplishments. Prior to working at JetSmarter, he co-founded two IT projects. These were an online chat system for website customer service and a distance-learning platform for Russian-speaking educational institutions.
He became truly inspired with the innovative idea of starting his own business, namely the JetSmarter when he himself experienced the inconvenience of booking a charter flight. He considered this booking process cumbersome at best. Putting the use of technology to work, he came out with the quick and efficient way to book charter flights, namely through JetSmarter app.
He later developed and launched a special app that would allow flyers to book private jet flights. He believed in his project’s success so much that he invested his own money in it. He initially launched the app back in August 2012 but it was available only to a select few who wished to book luxurious and expensive private jet flights. However, after investing more of his own money in the app and developing successful marketing strategies to promote the app, he finally launched an updated version of the app JetSmarter. From this point on, the app became available to the general public.
In conclusion, today the JetSmarter app makes the air travel for the elite or high net worth individuals as easy as ordering Uber. Interestingly, however, basic membership starts at 5000 per year.
