Buckingham Palace celebration for client incognito®

Howard Carter has travelled a long way since he suffered a severe bout of malaria while in India.
And that journey has ended with an audience with the Queen at Buckingham Palace to celebrate the highest accolade for business success.

Pensionledfunding.com client Howard was invited to meet Her Majesty and the Duke of Edinburgh after his company incognito® was honoured with the Queen’s Award for Sustainable Development.
He also had a surprise for the Queen at the Buckingham Palace reception, telling her Prince Charles’ own Duchy of Cornwall Estate stocked incognito® products.
“It was a real honour to meet the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh. Nicky Monina and I spoke at length with Her Majesty,” Howard said.
“I thanked her for devoting her life to the service of the British people and she was impressed that her son, Prince Charles, was selling the whole incognito® insect repellent range in his Duchy of Cornwall Nurseries!
“Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Princess Eugenie were also in attendance with so many interesting and talented people from all walks of life.”
Howard spent five years developing his company which sells DEET-free natural insect repellents after falling ill back in the late 1990s.
He turned to pensionledfunding.com to help grow the business and improve his cash flow after the BBC Dragons wanted too much of a stake in his company and the banks were unwilling to lend.
Howard was able to fund incognito® using the value of the intellectual property he had built up in his company to secure money from his pension.
The company now produces internationally-renowned products which are 100 per cent natural and biodegradable, extracted by a chemical-free process with ingredients grown in nitrate-free soils and removed from plants by steam distillation.
“The Queen’s Award is taking it to the next level in business; I can thoroughly recommend it to any SME,” said a delighted Howard.
