Noa Mintz, CEO and founder of the successful startup Nannies by Noa, is stepping down from her position. It’s not because she’s retiring, or taking a better job–but because she wants to focus on school. High school, that is.

You read that right. The Jewish 15-year-old entrepreneur founded her company while in 7th grade after her parents presented her with the challenge of finding a better babysitter for her family. Two years later, Mintz is in the business of connecting quality nannies and babysitters with NYC families and vice versa. This lucrative business now has over 150 clients and is netting her a pretty penny–which she invests back into the business presently but could easily fund a salary in the future.

However, high school is important and working 40 hours a week doesn’t leave a lot of time for chemistry homework. So, Mintz decided to hire a CEO to run her company while she focuses on school. Allison Johnson will be working from the company’s Midtown Manhattan office.

Pretty impressive, nu?
