The multiplier will be something specific to your sector, not 3-6 x t/o, 3 at best for your business, if you dont know the multiplier you need to get someone with expertise in your sector on board.
The overall value will be heavily descreased now because we are not in a period of economic growth, so the likelyhood of a good/fast return is lower.
The VC deals I have been involved in normally want 51%, especially if its a web based model, & especially in this climate. If you have planned for debt, not loss of equity the first decision yoiu need to make is how much equity are you prepared to give up to make it happen.
