February’s PubTalk is scheduled for tonight next Thursday (sorry!) — and the lineup features JuJu, founded by Julia Junkin. When we interviewed Junkin for #50startups in December, she described her JuJu app as “emoticons on crack.” The app allows you to remix existing art into your own creative expressions and then instantly send them to your family and friends.

Also pitching at February PubTalk:

  • Lava Love, a Bend company that makes detoxifying soaps from volcanic rocks and minerals.
  • July Nine, an Oregon company that designs and manufacturers bags and other goods in the U.S.

As usual, you can pre-purchase your tickets here or just wing it and buy them at the door. Sponsored by Economic Development for Central Oregon, PubTalk is at McMenamins. The event runs from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
