The Nigerian Association of Small and Medium Enterprises (NASME) was registered in 1996 as a Business Membership Organization (BMO), to co-ordinate and foster the promotion of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) in Nigeria. NASME was jointly conceived by promoters of Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in the private sector and agencies of the Federal Government of Nigeria, to serve as the apex organization that will coordinate MSME activities and also interact with local and foreign organizations whose services are vital to the development of MSMEs.
