About Us

In 2019, Amarillo voters gave their go-ahead to a variety of projects and initiatives aimed at enhancing the Amarillo College landscape. Among these projects and initiatives was the Innovation Outpost. Amarillo College soon began the work to bring the Innovation Outpost to life.

Innovation Outpost is now a space where students, business leaders, and Amarillo community members collaborate, innovate, and grow to compete in the 21st century economy. Through industry-driven courses, workshops, events, and one-on-one conversations with industry experts, Amarilloans and Amarillo College students use specialized programming and state-of-the-art facilities to reskill and develop Amarillos workforce of the future. 

 

Our mission is to advance industrial innovation, digital transformation, and skill development to foster a more competitive and advanced economy in the Texas Panhandle.We understand that digital transformation is more than just a business transformation. Its an attitude. A culture. A willingness to be bold, human-centered and build a legacy through innovation. 

According to study by Deloitte, 87% of companies think digital will disrupt their industry, but only 44% are prepared. The Innovation Outpost and our partners design workshops and programming that help business leaders retool and reskill their workforces, successfully bringing their entire operations into the digital age.
