Yes, companies to help you develop your ideas do exist. But it's going to be seriously expensive, or you're going to lose a large share of the profits/ownership in your idea/invention for the help.
Unless you have a REALLY solid idea, and hopefully a working prototype... You're going to have a hard time convincing people.
My uncle has a few patented devices... and the patent process is insanely expensive. Like, more than your avg brand new car expensive.
If you haven't seen it already, there's a discovery show out there called "Pitchmen" it gives you a decent idea of just how much sh*t is involved with getting a product from idea to market. A must watch if you're thinking of inventing your own gizmo. Season one is/was on Netflix (free for 30 days... watch it and cancel the subscription).
