I have a valid and stamped h1b visa.Currently not in usa as it was consular notification. Now my sponsored company does not have any onsite opportunity for me. So is it possible for me to travel to usa on my own and search for a job and then look for some consultancy for h1b transfer. Or I should look for a company which can do h1b transfer . Once its approved then only travel to usa. Please tell me the feasibility of these .

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
- "Questions about immigration or moving for extended periods of time (studies or employment, among others) are off-topic. Our sister site, Expatriates Stack Exchange might be a better place to ask.

Almost certainly not. Your sponsoring company signed a labor certification stating that you were essential and they might lose the ability to sponsor more H1Bs if they fire you even before you arrive.
On your end, you’d lose the H1B if you arrived without the job at the company listed on your H1B. It’s not a work-anywhere visa.
