Sergey Petrossov is one of the youngest and most successful CEOs in the world; however, his success with his company, JetSmarter, did not come easily. In order for his company to grow into the success it is today, he had to draw on some of the lessons he learned during his high school and college years. Even though he is one of the youngest CEOs on Earth, he is far from new to the world of business. He actually knew he wanted to be an entrepreneur even during some of his youngest years. He first entered the world of business as a high school student while he was growing up in Florida.
During his high school years, Sergey Petrossov wanted to help his family put food on the table. He actually decided to get involved in the import and export business with various car parts. He quickly realized he had a knack of the business world, as few high school students are anywhere close to as adventurous as he is. Then, he went on to college at the University of Florida. There, he got involved in a startup company in the digital world. He worked with a team of people who were designing a new digital chat platform that could reach more people than ever.
He took the lessons he applied from these business adventures and put them to work as he designed his own company, called JetSmarter. He got the idea for this company when he rode on a private plane for the first time with a friend of his. Using the lessons, he learned from his first business adventures, he has turned JetSmarter into an unprecedented success. It will be exciting to watch this company continue to grow over the next few years. It may change the entire travel industry as most people know it today. For Sergey Petrossov, time will tell.
