App Developer for start-up

I have a great idea for an app. I have talked to my tech-savvy friends and those who'd use it, who all say it has good potential. It would revolve around user participation (similar to GasBuddy) and I have several ideas for revenue generation that would allow the app to be free for consumers. That said, I don't write code, need me a code-writer / marketing. Considering offering it to a larger company, once the app proves helpful. I mostly want this app because the current apps don't achieve my needs - so once it takes off, I would remain a creative consultant, but not require full entrepreneurship. Who wants in?
