Sergey Petrossov is a 28-year-old entrepreneur. He is the founder and Chief Executive Officer of JetSmarter. Petrossov’s company is a charter jet club. Like a country club, members receive perks on chartered flights throughout the US. JetSmarter also flies to Europe and the Middle East. There are plans for the company to expand its flight itinerary to India, China, and South America.
When Petrossov was nearly a teenager, his family moved to South Florida. Upon graduating from high school, Sergey enrolled in the University of Florida. At the University of Florida, he earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a concentration in Finance.
Sergey Petrossov was in a rush to get out of college. He did well despite this. While in college, Petrossov began working toward entrepreneurship. He is given credit for co-founding a distance learning software for those colleges and universities that were on a budget. These colleges and universities can now offer online learning to their students. Sergey got in on the ground floor and he is considered a co-founder.
Petrossov would agree with the adage that managers are trained, and entrepreneurs are born. Since Sergey was a young child, he has shown the entrepreneur spirit. His first ventures include running lemonade stands, garage sales, and car washes. These experiences had an influence on his adult life.
Petrossov is an entrepreneur who began his company, JetSmarter, in 2013. The company is like a country club or at least constructed around this concept. Members pay an annual fee for membership. Today, the fee is $14 thousand. Once you are a member, you have exclusive rights as all other members to travel on a chartered plane at your convenience.
JetSmarter has more than 260 employees. More than half the employees work in the headquarters building. They have their headquarters in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Sergey has been a resident of the area since he was just about a teenager.
