TechNode’s founder Gang Lu took to the stage at TechCrunch Shanghai last week to interview Discuz!’s founder Kevin Day on his experience in transforming from an entrepreneur to an angel investor.

Day founded a BBS platform Discuz! in 2001 and gradually dipped toes into venture capital industry after making money from the business. Day is the angle investor of Boyaaa game developer just listed on Hong Kong Stock Exchange recently, and Tianjin Hemu, which was acquired by an A-share company for $2 million.
