SantaBen Giveaway is an initiative aimed and improving the quality of tech talents (Product Managers, Designers and Developers) in Nigeria, started by Benjamin Dada in 2019.

It receives donation from friends and others interested in supporting the growing talent ecosystem in Nigeria. This year’s giveaway is being supported by Product Manager Fisayo, Developer Moyin, Designer Imasuen and Product/Process Manager Busayo.

It also partners directly with the training entities to get discounted prices for their courses. This year, SantaBen is partnering with Product Dive to train aspiring & experienced Product Managers. Through the giveaway, Product Dive will award a 40% scholarship to 9 winners and a 100% scholarship to one winner, subject to terms and conditions.

Also, SantaBen has partnered with Designer Babe to give out 15 copies of her "Clueless To Designer" book to winners of the giveaway.
