Sergey Petrossov has had an eye for improvement and growth from when he was a kid in South Florida running a lemonade stand to when he was a student attempting to run a business to fulfill the demand of tire rims more effectively. After graduation, he founded an online education tech company that is still going strong. Then he took a flight.
In 2009, he took a private flight and during this flight, he discovered the whole booking situation was convoluted and time-consuming. He also learned that there are a lot of un-used seats and empty flights one way or the other. The system that the private and public airlines were using was archaic and there was a clear need for the right analytical mind to make things more efficient.
Sergey Petrossov describes his business’ services as a new transportation network in the sky. He matches people who are looking for private flights to jets that are empty using an app that he created. The app is integrating other features as well, including anticipating the need for luxury car services and housing at the end of the flight if the user wants to partake. The app takes luxury private flights that were once available only to the few and opens them to the many. He knows his market, and the mass affluent of the globe have enjoyed the convenience and lower flight costs available to fly the skies in luxury.
The sky is the limit for those with an analytical mind, the right opportunities, education, and the wit to know when to act. After the success of JetSmarter, all eyes are on Sergey Petrossov to see what his next move will be. What will be the next problem that he will identify, solve, and capitalize upon?
