Rarely would they throw money at ideas unless you are a famous inventor with a proven track record of monetising your ideas.

Usually you’ll need to find a way to prove there is money about to be made. If you’re talking about your app, there are some sources of funding and support to get a prototype or first version built and test your market: For example: http://accelerator.rivercitylabs.net/ which recently had a batch of teams go through this process.

You could also try attending a Startup Weekend near you to find some developers and get something built and tested. https://startupweekend.org/

You need to find a way to build something and get your first customers/users cheaply before anyone (including you) would invest a decent amount of money in your business.

Good luck!
