Sergey Petrossov was born in Russia but grew in Florida. He went to high school in Florida and pursued Computer Science at the University of Florida. During his high school life, he was interested in technological endeavors and computer studies. At the university, he sharpened this interest to become real ideas. He has overseen various operations such as the live-chatting and educational software that he sold to institutions that majored in the Russian language. With his aviation hobby, he was able to collect broken jets, fix them and sell them to other jet companies. Sergey Petrossov has been awarded the 30 under 30 by Forbes and the Top working Professional by Sun-Sentinel.
His idea of establishing JetSmarter came as he was boarding a private jet on his business trip. It is at this point that he noticed that the entire boarding process was marred with chaos and difficulties. As a bright entrepreneur, and with the rise of mobile marketing, Sergey Petrossov identified this as an opportunity and as a way of solving the problem through technology. The idea of JetSmarter was born from this opportunity. He organized a group of technical staff from previous projects and invested the project with his capital.
The project was practically to create an app that could connect travelers with jet service providers from around the world. In 2012, the initial beta version of the app was produced by the team. Interested investors contributed more capital that oversaw the launch of the second version of the app. In partnership with accredited companies such as Nokia, Microsoft, Mercedes Benz, NASA among other firms, Sergey Petrossov was able to launch the final version of the JetSmarter app that is currently used. The app works by first registering one as a member. The registered members have privileges of paying for pre-scheduled crafts from and to famous places, booking private planes and have access to last minute flights.
