The Asturian Federation of Entrepreneurs was founded in 1977 and represents the interests of the entrepreneurs in the Principality of Asturias. The affiliation is optional.

Currently, the Federation is made up of nearly 100 territorial and sectorial business associations, which at the same time comprise nearly 35,000 companies located throughout the territory of the Autonomous Community of Asturias. The Federation is also made up of more than 40 large companies that operate in Asturias and due to their type of business, sales volume, turnover, staff, or social importance are directly affiliated to the Federation as singular companies.
