Final round interviews

Going into a final round interview at an impact VC fund, and the format will be they will provide a fictional investment opportunity and ask me questions to understand my thought process on assessing the investment. 

I've been doing the basic practice in terms of familiarizing myself with the firm's thesis and methods, as well as running through my own general framework. Just wanting to make sure I do everything I can to prepare, what other things should I be looking out for? What types of questions would the interviewer typically ask in this case? 

Thanks so much!
