NAFES began operations in 2001 subsequent to a study conducted by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) looking into the sustainability and needs of SMEs and the private sector at large. Their findings concluded that support for SMEs was needed to provide an access point for quality business advisory services.

They created a counterpart-funding vehicle for the Jordanian Government to use through the Higher Council for Science and Technology (HCST) to build NAFES.
