Entrepreneurial alertness

A sixth sense of entrepreneurs that allows them to see opportunities that others miss, is called entrepreneurial alertness which is defined as the ability to notice things without engaging in deliberate search. Alertness is largely a learned skill, and people who have more knowledge of an area tend to be more alert to opportunities in that area than others.
