29-year-old Sergey Petrossov, who has developed an app called JetSmarter that aspires to be the Uber of private jets for the rich, has secured funding from Jay-Z and a member of Saudi Arabian royalty in order to help fund the venture. JetSmarter allegedly has about $1 billion behind it.

“Our goal is to take massive market share against commercial airlines, specifically business and first class, especially for routes under five hours,” said Petrossov.
