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.
