Gartner Group

BVP's Neill Brownstein participated in Gartner's original venture round in 1979. The company provided market research and recommendations on IT and telecommunications products, along with consulting services. It went public in 1986 (OTC:GRR) and was bought by Saatchi & Saatchi in 1988. Two years later, management and some investors took it private, and it went public again in 1993 (NYSE:IT).
