In 2013 Kernel Capital established its first partnership with Invest Northern Ireland (Invest NI) following the creation of The Bank of Ireland Kernel Capital Growth Fund. This fund has £30m allocated specifically for Northern Ireland and Invest NI is a corner stone investor.

The Bank of Ireland Kernel Capital Growth Fund (NI) was designed to help SMEs in Northern Ireland to accelerate their growth. Invest Northern Ireland has committed £15million of funding to this fund, which has the potential to invest over £24million in SMEs over the next five years. Invest NI's investment in the Bank of Ireland Kernel Capital Fund is part financed by the European Regional Development Fund under the EU Investment for Growth and Jobs Programme 2014-2020.

Invest NI is the Northern Ireland government organization focused on supporting businesses that are delivering economic growth within Northern Ireland. Invest NI's Access to Finance programme has enabled the establishment of six investment funds providing over £170m of available finance. The funds are both debt and equity based, and invest in export focused businesses across the full spectrum of growth or development.
