After in spite of or despite, we use a noun, a pronoun or -ing.
e.g.: In spite of the rain, we enjoyed our holiday.
In spite of what I said yesterday, I still love you.
I didn't get the job in spite of having all the necessary qualifications.
Despite is the same as in spite of.
e.g.: She wasn't well, but despite this, she went to work.
