I don't really think that product design is so important and for the early stage company because it will definitely lack a lot, compared to the release version.
The release version on the other hand should be in design as well. So, if you can deliver a release version. Being an early stage company, that would be definitely great and you should also concentrate on the design of the release version. Otherwise, I would pay additional attention to the pitch deck, and a compelling design event.
