"So, the real answer is you want to avoid conversations about valuation. You want to say, "We're going to let the market decide the valuation in this round." Then you want to construct a round in which multiple VCs are giving you term sheets, and you essentially let them know what the highest bidder is and if they're willing to match or beat it.
