Do not use despite to introduce a clause. Instead, use despite with a present participle, despite the fact that, or a clause beginning with although:
Despite neglecting his studies, he got his degree (NOT Despite he neglected his studies ...).
She seemed no happier, despite the fact that her physical condition had improved.
Although I learned a great deal, I thought the course was too narrowly based.
Despite is not followed by 'of', although it means the same as 'in spite of'.

BAD: Despite the train was empty, he came and sat in front of me.
GOOD: Although the train was empty, he came and sat in front of me.
GOOD: Despite the train being empty, he came and sat in front of me.

Despite and in spite of are prepositions (NOT conjunctions). Unlike although (a conjunction), they cannot introduce a clause that has a finite verb ('was'). Compare: 'In spite of/Despite owning two cars, he can't drive.' 'Although he owns two cars, he can't drive.'
