Qatalyst Phone Interview - Tech Specific Technicals?

Hey Everyone,

I have an upcoming phone interview with Qatalyst, this is my first phone interview and I want to be well prepared. I know my story, answers to "why tech" and technical knowledge is a given, however, I am not sure about which tech specific technicals I should prepare for and/or how deep.

I know that I want to know how to value companies that have no revenue/no profit & what motives are behind M&A transactions in the tech sector (especially if the target isn't profitable). What other tech-specific technical questions should I prepare for? Thanks in advance, for your time.
