Meet Vishal Sahu from Ranchi – alumni of JR University and an entrepreneur. What Vishal, the entrepreneur from Ranchi loves is to eat chicken. Today, he is also the founder of emurga.com. Well, it was not just his love for savoury chicken that led him to open emurga.com. It was his need to get fresh raw chicken anywhere, anytime that gave Vishal Sahu the idea to open an online fresh-raw chicken delivery shop. To order fresh organic chicken, all you need to do is order online at emurga or call and place your order.

Well, what gave this boy from Ranchi the idea to build a start-up? When asked this question, Vishal says, ‘The idea for this business came to my mind one day when I had guests at home. They especially wanted to eat chicken. I was busy with work and couldn’t go to the market to get fresh cut chicken. Nor was there anything available from where I could have ordered reliable fresh-raw chicken at reasonable price.’

“That is when it struck me – to offer freshly sourced, farm fresh chicken to those who have sudden chicken cravings and also offer them the convenience of home-delivery.”
Vishal shared his business idea with a few friends and advisors. He got encouraging feedback from all. With confidence, he went ahead and laid the foundation of his start-up along with a friend.
Today, emurga.com is selling more than 80 kgs of fresh raw chicken everyday. The business is growing and it has become very successful with youngsters and families alike in Ranchi city.
The best part of this business is, Vishal believes in the concept of farm to table. He has a network of more than 50 poultry farmers from around Ranchi associated with him. So that makes his raw chicken safe and fresh.
Vishal is an MBA student from Jharkhand Rai University. During his MBA years, he had always imagined working in a corporate. But now, having experienced his entrepreneurial journey, he encourages MBA students to be job creators, than job seekers.
