The SquareMileMuslim social enterprise was formed in the Spring of 2011 by hosting a networking event at Herbert Smith LLP, one of the world's leading law firms. Since then there has been a number of events in collaboration with other organisations' faith and diversity networks, all designed to connect individuals and organisations for individual and collective benefit. They include UBS, Grant Thornton UK LLP and for all events to-date, support from Association of Muslim Police, situated in the heart of Bishopsgate, City of London.
