Shawn Askinosie has a successful career as a criminal defense lawyer for nearly 20 years before founding Askinosie Chocolate in Springfield, Mo. He travels to Ecuador, Honduras, the Philippines, and Tanzania to source 100 percent of his cocoa beans directly from farmers. This allows Askinosie Chocolate to carry the “single-origin chocolate” label while enabling farmers to share in the company’s profits. In addition to his work to empower farmers, Askinosie involves students in his business and undertakes community development projects.

He shared his story and his chocolate during a visit to MU on April 16th, 2014.

Dynamic initiatives centered around the strengths of the University of Missouri
Introduction
What is Mizzou Advantage?

University of Missouri faculty, students and alumni worked together to identify competitive assets that set MU apart from other universities.  These assets underlie four dynamic initiatives that collectively are called the Mizzou Advantage.

The purpose of Mizzou Advantage is to increase MU’s visibility and stature in higher education and to strengthen these areas: 

  • Quality of faculty and students
  • Instructional programs
  • Value of an MU degree
  • Success of grant proposals
  • Fundraising results
  • U.S. and Missouri economies
  • Venture-capital investment

A network of collaborators — faculty members, centers, departments, corporate partners and other universities — will drive activities related to each competitive asset. MU has a $6 million annual financial plan to increase the impact of those collaborators, whose efforts will result in more grants and opportunities to recruit the most prominent scholars and scientists. Not only will Mizzou Advantage contribute to MU’s status in higher education, it will create jobs and improve the quality of life for Missourians.
