@BradyOriginal Agree with that! A realistic-round is a good way to put it :)

Great read @Sydney. I have never heard of a few of these companies. I personally think that tech / startups have had over valued rounds in the past few years, however, I do not think it is a traditional bubble. This bubble, won't pop, but it seems that some of the air is being let out slowly to prevent that from happening. It will eventually inflate again, but stronger and at a slower pace than before. I think that the whole Unicorn thing created a trend and companies/investors were throwing money around to hit that $1 billion mark. They are now realizing that the valuation doesn't matter all that much. The "down-round" seems to be more of a "realistic-round" !
