The National Board for Small Scale Industries (NBSSI) was established in 1985 under Act 434 of 1981 as an apex body for the development of small-scale industries in Ghana.

In order to create a single, dynamic and integrated organisation adequately capitalised and capable of responding to the needs of small-scale enterprises sector, the Government merged the Ghanaian Enterprises Development Commission (GEDC) and the Cottage Industries Division of the Department of Rural Housing and Cottage Industries (DRHCI) with the Board in 1994.

The Board provides financial and non-financial service to potential and practising entrepreneurs in the manufacturing and services sector.
